Primary Inter-House Swimming Carnival                                                         BACK IPSHA Inter-School Swimming Carnival Assembly – Open Invitation Primary Inter-House Swimming CarnivalCongratulations to everyone involved in our recent Swimming Carnival. We were blessed with wonderful weather and it was pleasing to have so many parents come along to join us on the day. We greatly appreciate the parents who volunteer to help with all events; in fact, we could not run such a great Carnival without their help. An event like this is a true indication of our school spirit. Our students behaved beautifully and their support for each other and their House was outstanding. A well-deserved thank you to Ms Mel Fowler for organising such a great event and providing a wonderful morning for our students. IPSHA Inter-School Swimming CarnivalYesterday our inter-school team competed against other independent primary schools at Wesley College. We were proud of the resilient and caring nature of our team; the way our students support and encourage each other is heart warming and their 'never give up' attitude is admirable. Thank you again…
