On Wednesday 9th February, Katherine Semar Juniors competed in a Year 4 Swimathon. This saw the children compete in teams of 8-10 against children from other schools. The aim was to swim as many widths as possible in 20 minutes. Below are some of the children's recounts:
"On Wednesday 9th February 2011, 4AW went to an amazing Swimathon. It was only 20 minutes but everyone enjoyed it. I really enjoyed the swimathon because although I don't like the deep end, my friends were cheering me and made me more happy. I especially enjoyed it because I got to go swimming on my birthday. I enjoyed it so much I didn't want to leave." By Bradley S.
"It was a very fun afternoon. We were against two other schools. My team got 84. The other scores were 51 for team B and 45 for team C. I enjoyed the swimathon because we had alot of fun and it was a really good afternoon." By Archie W.
