MEGA GALLERY: Gayndah State School Swimming Carnival fun

STUDENTS of Gayndah State School sported their colourful togs and swimming caps at the annual swimming carnival at the local Gayndah Swimming Pool on Friday.

It was a day of fun in the sun as everyone participated in 50 metre and 25 metre races of breastroke, backstroke, freestyle and butterfly.

The students worked as a team during the relay races and got to watch their parents and teachers battle it out in their own relay race at the end of the day.

Principal Mr Andrew Goldie said it is so important that children are able to swim well.

“It's been a really good day, we’re so lucky to have access to this pool with all the shade sails,” Mr Goldie said.

Gayndah State School Teacher Ms Trott announced the results of the carnival.

“In third place with 179 points is Archer,” Ms Trott said.

“Second place got 206 points and the winners at 249 points - congratulations Connolly.”

Sports Captain of Connolly Samantha Zillman said she enjoys the carnival as everyone has fun and gets to cool off.

“Thank you to Amy and Ben for bringing us all together,” Miss Zillman said.

“Thank you Connolly for putting in a great effort.”
