On Thursday 9 March at Norwood Swimming Centre Walford assembled a 20-student strong squad to compete at the Adelaide South East Sapsasa Swimming Carnival.

The day saw students compete in individual events for Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, Butterfly and Relay events. All students competed very strongly during the day which included several occasions where students placed inside the Top 3 for events. Some of these placings will also earn some students selection to the State Metro Championships. Due to these placings and other strong performances by students through the day, Walford finished 3rd overall out of all competing schools. However, this also resulted in Walford being the overall winner for the Small School Section for the Adelaide South East Carnival. This is the second year in a row where Walford has won this award.

This is a fantastic achievement by our students which is testament to the work they have been doing during their Health and Physical Education Lessons this term with Ms Delvins, Ms Lamming and Mr Johnson. A big thank you is to be extended to our parents and grandparents who attended the day assisting with timekeeping and showing their support to all students competing.
