On Friday we had about 80 students who wanted to be eligible to go on to Zone next year attend our swimming carnival. All students swam their best & all students eligible to go to Zone made it in the designated qualifying times. Congratulations to those students! A list of the students selected will be displayed in the office window this week. Permission notes for the carnival will be given out at the start of next year. The zone carnival is on 14th February at Parramatta Pool.
The staff at the pool complimented OLQP on our organisation & exemplary behaviour- well done everybody! A huge thank you to Mrs Khoury, Mrs Bousalim, Mrs Gatti, Mrs Shore, Mrs Calderon, Mrs Mifsud, Mrs Callaghan & Mrs Mandoukos who volunteered to give up the opportunity to just sit & watch in order to make the carnival run so smoothly & successfully. Without your help we wouldn't be able to run our carnivals & the staff & students greatly appreciate your support.
