District Swimming Sports

A group of very enthusiastic and talented students represented our school in the Rowville District Swimming Sports that were held last week at the Monash Aquatic Centre. Our students represented the school with distinction. As a team, they cheered each and every competitor, they celebrated the effort of their team members, whether they came first or eighth, they tried their best and enjoyed time in the sun doing what they enjoy – swimming. The most noticeable trait demonstrated by our school was EFFORT. Each and every student fought right until the end of their 50 metre race. This character trait ‘Effort’ is a more reliable indicator of future success than ‘intelligence’. I want all students to realise that we value ‘Effort’ at Park Ridge Primary.

Park Ridge finished in 4th place overall. Highlights included:

Blake P 1st in Backstroke

Jess A 1st in Breaststroke

Under 10 relay team consisting of Blake P, Ryder P, Lachlan C and Luca I 1st place in 4/50m Freestyle.

Isabelle C 2nd place in Breaststroke.
