Mortdale Public School Swimming Carnival

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)

—Speaker, I would like to congratulate students from Years 2 – 6 at Mortdale Public School, who recently attended the 2024 Swimming Carnival at Roselands Aquatic Centre. These students showcased their incredible talent in various events and competitions. I am well informed that there were plenty of young athletes keen to get stuck in and give swimming a go. I believe this is what grassroots sport is all about. Local sporting opportunities like swimming carnivals provides a platform for young athletes to develop their skills, whilst fostering a lifelong love for physical activity. At the grassroots level, every child, regardless of their background or ability, has the opportunity to participate, learn, and grow. Mortdale Public School have been so instrumental in developing this love of sports within our community. I would like to give a special mention to the students who have progressed to competing at the Georges River District Swim Carnival! A special shoutout also to Marlene H, Ryan D, Audrey H, Lucas M and Maya P for their exceptional effort. The outstanding performance and sportsmanship displayed by the students is a true reflection of our community. Congratulations everyone!
