Yr 4 - 6 Swimming Carnival
It seem so long ago now but at the beginning of the term we had our Yr 4- 6 swimming carnival held at Pimpama Sports Hub.
With the smallest group of competitors, Tyndale came home victorious with the overall house win. All students participated with Grace and Perseverance and cheered their fellow King's Kids no matter what house they were in. It truly was a great day to be part of King's.
A special shoutout to the small but ferociously competitive army of parents that represented all the houses. Without these parents our Staff vs Students vs Parents race would not have been possible. Thank you for, literally, jumping in and having some fun. The staff and students loved every minute of it.
Here are some reports from our House Captains
Tyndale Swimming Carnival Report
"The year 4-6 swimming carnival was my first duty as the Tyndale house captain.
The best part of my day was leading my house into a win.
A lot of perseverance was shown at the swimming carnival. Although we had the smallest house on the day, we did not give up. We worked harder and participated in as much as we could to gain points towards our house. It was great to see everyone trying their best and encouraging each other, but most importantly having fun. #LETSGOOOOTYNDALE"

“On the 8th of February 2023, years 4, 5 & 6 attended the annual school swimmingcarnival at the Pimpama sports hub.
It was a great chance for the students to showcase their swimming skills and participate in the top sporting event of the Summer. All competitors showed great courage in taking part in the various races.
My favourite part of the day was watching everyone participating by either cheering on their house team or competing. The funniest event at the swimmingcarnival was when they played “The Macarena” song and everyone started to perform the dance moves.
I believe this was a great opportunity for future House Captains because they now know some of the leadership duties that they are required to do e.g. setting up a house meeting, working with your co-house captain and creating war cries, swimming in a relay for year 6, year 9, parents and teachers etc. All in all it was a great learning experience.
Also, a Finney house shout out to all the teaching staff who made it a memorable day and lastly, the parents who supported the children.”.
