Swimming Carnival 2014
After starting as the St Francis Xavier Sports Coordinator 5 weeks ago, I have been very impressed with the amount of enthusiasm and willingness to be involved in school sport from our students, parents and staff. I had the privilege of attending the College Swimming Carnival on Thursday 6 March and was really proud of not only the high standard of athletes we have in our College but all students who participated and involved themselves in the event, with enthusiasm and good spirits. Thank you to Lee Dwyer and Maria Miniutti from the Physical Education Department who organised this event. Kelly Candy – Sports Coordinator
