Points of Interest

· By far this year’s event the biggest with just under 400 swimmers representing 22 schools, 2 tertiary institutions as well as a number of unattached swimmers.

· Primary school champs Mt. Saint Mary’s of Nadi successfully defended their title for the 3rd successive year. Likewise, Nadi Muslim College also of Nadi defended their 3rd successive title.

· National Schools Swimming is grateful to Courts Homecentres for their support and sponsorship in giving $20,000 towards Schools Swimming.

· This year’s build up is in preparation for next years Pacific School Games scheduled for Canberra, Australia. Fiji Schools swimming participated at the 2005 Pacific School Games in Melbourne with its lone medal won by Calum Liew.

· We are anticipating a bigger and better games for next year noting that a squad will be chosen to represent Fiji Schools to the Pacific School Games. It is great to see the power house of schools sports such as Marist, Suva Grammar, International School and Yet Sen School showing good results. We hope that come next year, other big name schools in Suva and the Nausori corridor will participate and make use of the National Aquatic Centre that is made available to them.
