The whistle will blow as competitors from North Arm State School dive from the blocks at their annual swim carnival in Eumundi this December.

Students will speed through the water, competing for first, second and third place in four different races including freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.

All students have been training hard during their weekly swimming lessons at the pool and Year 4 teacher Ruth Robinson said there would be a race for everyone to take part in.

“It is good to be part of a team and there is a stroke for every ability,” Ms Robinson said.

Year 4 teacher Shugi Shaneman said the students were all super excited and looking forward to taking part in some healthy competition at the carnival.

“I think it’s great that kids go to the swimming carnival because they get to have fun and compete against each other. It’s a great day,” Mr Shaneman said.
