LEETON shire's small schools have again came together to put on another successful swimming carnival for their students in 2021.
Held last month, students from Gralee, Yanco, Wamoon and Whitton-Murrami joined together at the Whitton Public Swimming Pool for the annual event.
A chilly start to the beginning of the day quickly saw the weather warm to a lovely 32 degrees.
The carnival had a record number of competitors in the younger age divisions competing in their various races, while senior students continued to provide the excitement and competitive edge to the day's events.
Yanco Public School took out the overall school points champion trophy and, for the first time in a number of years, Whitton-Murrami Public School won the handicap trophy.
Competitors who qualifying for the next level of competition travelled to the Leeton Regional Aquatic Centre in the week after the event to compete at the LNPSSA Swimming Carnival.
