MPSSA Swimming Carnival 2023

On Tuesday Nicky and I took a group of 23 Year 4 - 6 students to Manurewa High for the MPSSA Swimming Carnival. It was such a great day and our team was amazing.

They demonstrated awesome sportsmanship and it was commended on the day by the organiser.

Every student swam so well and really gave it their all and made us proud.

The pool was much bigger compared to our pool and that was a bit daunting for some of our little guys.

Here are the overall results from this day…
