Sink or swim in style at Alstonville carnival

POURING rain just spurred on student passion at Alstonville High School's swimming carnival at Alstonville Pool.

It delayed the march past but, as the rain eased off the inevitable happened; the house chants were seemingly louder and louder.

But why not - pride was at stake.

Despite no red carpet available, and nothing from Sass & Bide, Alannah Hill or Zimmermann, it was high quality fashion stakes and the paparazzi were out in force.

Making his own stamp on the event was Michael Blackler who said that "despite the rain, it was a top day".

"Plenty of fun activities and great styles," he said, "even the younger students were into it."

"Everyone got involved and that's what these events are all about. I think the leaders did a great job with their individual houses."
