Over the past week, we’ve had both Primary and Secondary Students compete at the HRIS (Hunter Region Independent Schools) Swimming Carnivals showing humility, sportsmanship and teamwork.

Primary HRIS Swimming

Scone Grammar School was award Age Champion Team for the 11 Year Girls, represented by Skye R & Jennie M, and the 12 Year Girls, represented by Isabella H, Alex R and Alexandra L. Isabella H & Jennie M (Year 6) and Quinn P (Year 2) have qualified in individual events. Alexandra L & Skye R will join Isabella and Jennie in the 4x50m freestyle relay at CIS (Combined Independent Schools) level.  This level of swimming shows strong commitment and perseverance from these girls – effort to be proud of.
