Rain doesn't stop school carnival

WHEN Ballina Southern Cross K-12 School held its Year 7-12 swimming carnival at Ballina Pool, it was probably wetter out of the pool that in it, but nobody seemed to mind.

Year 12 student, Georgia Playford, said that not even the wet weather could have dampened anyone’s spirits.

“The rain probably heightened spirits, if anything,” she said.

“Everyone seemed to be participating. There were about a dozen new records set and, of course, fashion statements were made.

“For me, it was also tinged with sadness because this was my last school swimming carnival.”
