Long Distance Swimming Achievements 

Congratulations to Year 7 student Paris Govan, Year 8 student Brooke Gannon and Year 10 student Tara Gannon on their recent swimming accomplishments.

These three students recently swam the long distance swim ranging from 3-13km, with The Swim & Survival Academy.

To qualify to do a distance swim, these participants completed training which consisted of 5 distance swims over a 6 week period to build up their endurance and strength. This is above and beyond their normal swimming commitments.

Paris, Brook and Tara gained so much more than a trophy for their achievements. The life skill of being able to set a goal which is above and beyond the norm and to demonstrate the fortitude and persistence to achieve it, is something to be very proud of.

Well done girls.
