SWIMMING

STUDENTS from Whitsunday Christian College (WCC) had smiles from ear to ear at the schools annual swimming carnival held at Proserpine Swimming Pool last Friday.

More than 200 kids swam on the day in a variety of events.

WCC sports co-ordinator John Eakin said students swam in both competitive and non-competitive races as well as the very popular ‘free time' sessions.

Eakin said the main emphasis of the carnival was just to see students participate and support their peers.

“It's a fun day,” he said.

“We just focus on participation and house spirit.

“It's all about having a go.”

When it came down to house points though, it was the Lions who defeated the Eagles.
