It might have been the cooler weather last Friday that had the children of Canowindra Public School swimming fast at the annual school swimming carnival held at Canowindra Swimming Pool.
There was a great display of sportsmanship and school spirit shown by all participating students with some students getting right behind their sporting house and dressing up.
A massive thirteen records were broken at the 2020 carnival which is a phenomenal achievement by the students.
Records broken included:
Will Swords: 9 years boys 50m freestyle.
Ava Thornberry: 9 years girls 50m free- style, Junior girls 50m breaststroke, Junior girls 50m butterfly and Junior girls 200m IM.

Lucy Neville: Junior girls 50m backstroke.
Boys Relay from Belubula House: Archie Moore, Levi Strange, Lachlan Dunkley and Jake Dunkley.

Congratulations must also go to the swimming age champions for 2020:

A number of students will now progress to the next round, swimming at the District Swimming Carnival on Thursday 27th February.
