Saint Peter's Primary School students Riley Perkins, Dallas Hickey, John Star and Logan Goudie won silver swimming for their school at an inter-school carnival in Sydney on Sunday.
The boys were competing in the in the MacKillop four times 50 metre relay competition held at Sydney's Olympic Park Aquatic Centre as part of the New South Wales Catholic Primary Schools swimming carnival.
The boys came 2nd place in the Peter Dobson PP5 small school relay with a time of two minutes forty seconds and 82 milliseconds.
From the carnival the competitors are put into two different teams (depending on zoning) with the Coly boys being among 132 students who have made the MacKillop team this year.
Saint Peter's principal Brian Conroy said he was extremely proud of the boys.
"Very very proud, they performed exceptionally well, improved their personal best time at each carnival they've been to this year have been quicker and quicker," Mr Conroy said.
"A couple of them have been doing the Coleambally Swim Club (squad), but just being given the opportunity to compete together at the carnivals has allowed them to develop those skills and learn when to dive in at the right time and them more opportunities they have to do that the better they get."
"Considering that Coleambally only has a little 25 metre pool and for these sorts of swimming carnivals they have to swim in 50 metre pools, it probably means they are swimming quicker because they don't have to put in that tumble turn at the 25 metre mark."
Bringing their medals back to school with them the boys will now be getting ready to head back to the Olympic Park to compete in the NSW Primary Schools Sports Association state championship.
"We have in the past had really teams make it from this Mackillop carnival make it to the NSWPSSA carnival before but this is the first time seven years," Mr Conroy said.
Alicia Perkins, the mother of Riley, helped drive the boys down to Sydney.
She said despite some of the boys being being nervous about swimming in the Olympic pool, the team was able to shave 11 seconds off their previous personal best.
