Swimming Carnival Report
On Monday 26 March, Marymount Campus held their annual Swimming Carnival at the SA Aquatic and Leisure Centre. It was going to be a tough battle between Adamson, McEwen, McLaughlin and Polding to see who would take out the Championship Shield. All girls showed amazing sportsmanship and team spirit when participating in their chosen events and games and the cheering from the stands was going strong all day.
The day started perfectly with the National Anthem sung by Year 6's Caitlin Bailey and Emma Smith, followed by a Health Hustle led by the MLG which saw all the students warming up in the grandstand.
There was some brilliant swimming on display in the 50m pool and many enthusiastic girls participating in a series of relays and games in the Water Polo pool. Everyone was given the opportunity to have some fun on the waterslide throughout the day as well. As the day drew to a close, the staff and MLG entertained the crowd with a relay race, the staff's competitive edge closely getting them over the line.
Overall it was a hugely successful day and we thank all the staff and parent volunteers who contributed to making the day run so smoothly. The results for the day were as follows:
On Thursday 15 March over 100 girls participated in the Intra Schools T20 Cricket Cup run by the SA Cricket Association. The Year 6's and Year 8's had completed a series of clinics prior to the carnival and it was a great way to practice those newly learnt skills. All girls took part in a range in several games and showed great energy enthusiasm. A huge thank you to Dominic Ascoli and Christos Anemouri who helped to supervise the carnival as well as the team of parent helpers. We certainly have some future cricket stars around the campus.
