Highlanders make a splash

Kids from the Moranbah Highlanders Swim Club took to the pool earlier this month to compete in a regional swim meet at the Greg Cruickshank Aquatic Centre, thanks to support from Stanmore Coal.

Stanmore was pleased to donate $1,000 to the Highlanders to help subsidise the club’s Under 8 membership fees. This meant 25 kids received a $40 discount on their annual membership. 

Moranbah Highlanders President Blair Vea Vea said the swim meet was a huge success.

“We had clubs attend from the Mackay and Isaac regions, and even as far as Springsure,” he said.

“We are constantly trying to encourage the little ones to be part of our club, and without these swimmers and the generous support from Stanmore, these carnivals would not be possible.”

Congratulations to all the winners of and best of luck for the swim season ahead!
