Congratulations to Mr Shane Asbury, Head of Sport, for winning the KIIS FM Jase & PJ Swimming Carnival (for teachers) and pocketing an incredible $10,000 for Luther College.
Teachers from a range of schools across Melbourne came together for the 50m Freestyle race, each participating in a heat until the eight fastest met in the final.
After a stunning performance in his heat, Mr Asbury started the final as firm favourite and he didn’t disappoint, leading from the outset. In the blink of an eye it was over, Luther College the victors.
“I am so delighted with the win and to see this money directly benefit our incredible students. I was humbled to be in such great teaching company, all of whom were passionate educators” Mr Asbury said.
The Carnival, which also featured Olympian James Magnussen, was a wonderful display of positivity and commitment from teachers willing to give it a go for the benefit of their students.
