Swimming news!

TAS Swimming has won the 2017 FNQ Regional Swimming Championships. This caps off a very successful season for the TAS club. It makes TAS Swimming the best performed State Level Team north of Rockhampton.

We congratulate the TAS students who won Age Champion Honours at the Regional Championships:

  • Ella Goddard (Age & Open Champ)
  • Harriet Grant
  • Thomas Chen
  • And a close runner- Up: Flynn Martin

Over first weekend of Term 2, the Age National Championships take place in Brisbane. We wish Ella, Harriet and Flynn all the best at this event.

Swimming News! 2

I had a chance to chat recently to a remarkable (and quite humble) young TAS woman, Ella Goddard. Ella broke a Far North Queensland 200m Butterfly record a couple of weekends ago. Amazingly, this record was set many years ago (and has been unbroken since) by National swimmer Julie Majer when she was a junior. Julie went on to medal at the Short Course Swimming World Championships in 1993. Ella broke this long-standing records by 3 seconds.

Kewarra Beach celebration

Last Friday afternoon was a terrific day in the life of Kewarra Beach campus. It was the final day for our visitors from Nagano, Osaka and they performed a dance in traditional costume. The whole campus were able to gather around the performance area, older students on the upper floor of the balcony, and younger students on the lower floor. It really was a special sight. We were then able to move into the Library to hear the Nagano students sing for us – again, a special performance.
