Walcha Central School and St Patrick's Primary School 2020 swimming carnivals are done and dusted

The Walcha school swimming carnival season is officially over for 2020 following the completion of the St Patrick's Primary School swimming carnival on Tuesday, February 18.

The local Catholic school was blessed with sunny weather and blue skies for its event - unlike Walcha Central School who had to brave rain and chilly temperatures.

At St Patrick's Primary School Blue House was victorious after tallying the most points for participation and placing.

The Walcha Central School winning sporting house and champions will be announced at an assembly on Monday, February 24.

"Supported by an eager band of parents, grandparents and community members, our students dressed in house colours, swam, bombed, belly flopped, encouraged others, supported their houses and displayed the type of school spirit that can only be found in Central schools," said a Walcha Central School teacher.

"It was a remarkable K-12 event, with outstanding swimming and enthusiasm throughout the day."
