Westport Public School students have swapped the classroom for the swimming pool as they competed in their annual swimming carnival on February 6.
Two-hundred students were sorted in houses Banks, Cook, Solander and Endeavour for the day of swimming excellence at Port Macquarie Swimming Pool.
Rainy weather persisted throughout the day of the annual swimming carnival, but students were largely unfazed as they took part in races and novelty events.
Successful swimmers from the event will be selected to represent the school at the Hastings Camden Haven Carnival later this month.
Assistant-principal Nicole said the school is providing opportunities for improvement in student swimming.
"It's a really wet day with the rain but the students are having a wonderful time," she said.
"We have lots of races and novelty races for the non-swimmers. It's a fun day out for all students from years one to six.
"Besides swimming being lots of fun, we live in Port Macquarie and it's important children have good swimming skills."
