It was dubbed 'The Race That Stops The Junior School' and it did not disappoint. Eight brave parents put their hand up to become 'The Dream Team' at this year’s Junior School House Swimming. With high levels of enthusiasm and varied levels of swimming ability, they appeared on the pool deck dressed in their chosen swimming attire. The staff and students were up against a lifeguard, an Olympian, a lion and a footballer. All the jokes and frivolity were replaced with sheer grit and determination once they hit the water and finished the race a respectable second.
A special thank you to Matt Benson, Debbie Andrews and Andrew Fenton who swam in their last ever race at a Junior School swimming carnival as their youngest children head off to Middle School in 2020. We're sure that in years to come they will look back on their participation in this event with great fondness and a smile.
The 2019 Dream Team consisted of Debbie Andrews, Matt Benson, Ash Carr, Kate Cowlishaw, Clayton Cross, Andrew Fenton, Chris Hoy and John Sweet.
