CLOSE to 800 students took part in the hotly contested Jimboomba State School Swimming Carnival last week.
The carnival was held over three days as grade 3-4 students swam on November 25, grades 1-2 on November 28 and grades 5-6 on November 29.
Henderson emerged as the clear winner with 1381 points followed by Flinders (1191), Logan (1033) and Lindesay (877).
Physical education teacher Jessie Vudrag said the carnival was an opportunity to identify strong swimmers and encourage overall participation.
"It is definitely a good opportunity and allows some of the kids who may go under the radar at other times to shine," she said.
"There are competitive 25 metre races and also fun participation."
Year six students Jett Wright and Zarlee Browne were named the 12-year-old boy and girl age champions.
Alexander Stewart, 9, won the age champion trophy for the second year in a row.
