  5. HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS AWARD CEREMONY: Well done to all swimmers who continue to swim, remain accountable and up-keep a strong communication with their coach. It is a big achievement to juggle school work, social relationships, other hobbies along with swimming. Swimming is a good vehicle to teach us many great qualities that will be used over and over again in the future. The awards went to the following swimmers: Break through swimmers: BLENDA KJELLGREN & LUCAS FLORCZAK. Swimmers of the year: SOPHIE VLIEGENBERG & HUGO KVARNSTROEM. Swimmers swimmer: PETER MICHAEL VALERIO. Lifetime achievement award: KIRA FLORCZAK. My speech this year covered being thankful for opportunities and giving thanks to the people who allow us to pursue opportunities. “Humility is not about thinking less of yourself, it is about thinking of yourself less.”

Have a great week all, looking forward to another great week of practice.
