The weather prediction did not look good, but the sun came out and St. Joseph’s School was able to hold its annual Swimming Carnival at the Boorowa Pool last Friday, February 2.
The day started with a traditional sing off before the students hit the water for their races.
It didn’t matter whether you swam for Mckay or McCauley, there was cheering for all as each competitor swam their hearts out and tried their best.
Congratulations to Noah Coble who broke Michael Hinds Junior Individual Medley record from 2007 - Noah swam the Medley in a time of 4:08.44.
