The fun and exciting senior school swimming carnival begins at 11.45am on Monday 25th November and will finish at approximately 2.15pm at Stafford State School. Students will participate in normal lessons at Brisbane Central State School from 9am – 11am. At 11.15am students will travel by bus to Stafford State School for the carnival. 
Students have been given the opportunity to nominate for any of the 25m and 50m finals events. Time trials have been completed during swimming lessons to find the fastest six students in each of the finals events. Age champions and district selection is decided from the finals.
If students did not make it into a final, they may still nominate to swim in any of 25m and 12.5m open events on the day. House points are awarded for all events. Novelty events such as a noodle race and a fashion parade will also be held on the day. The more participants swimming in each house = greater chance of winning the carnival. So encourage your child/ren to get involved, have some fun, wear their house colours and most of all try their best for St Pauls and Rogers!!
The fashion parade will be held after all of the swimming events. Students are encouraged to wear clothes in the colour of their house. Remember that St Pauls wears Purple and Rogers wears Red. The most interesting, creative and brightest male and female from each house will win a prize.
