New pool packed for inaugural school swim carnival

It was a full day of sport, fun and relaxation (pictured above) for scores of Toodyay District High School students, parents friends as the shire’s new 25m public swimming pool hosted last month’s inaugural Faction Swimming Carnival. The program included competitive water events, novelty games and even a faction ‘dance-off’ contest for extra points. The Faction Swim Carnival ended with student, staff and parent 4 x 25m freestyle race. The contest was neck-and-neck for most of the race with parent and student teams leading first and second respectively into the last leg of the relay before the staff team powered ahead in the final stretch to “take the chocolates”.
