The most exciting par t of my swimming
was going on the plane with the NSW
team to Melbourne and having all my
family – Mum, Dad, Tim, Nick and Sarah
come to watch me swim.
I am a lucky young girl!

Karley Moran of Paterson was our December
2013 cover girl. Here the Year 11 student
at St Mary’s Campus, All Saints College,
Maitland, updates us on some recent
Swimming is a big par t of my life. I attend
squad training at our local Paterson pool
during the week and on Saturday mor nings
I train at Dungog pool with my brothers,
sister and friends. I star ted competing in
primar y school and gained my first medal
in Year 6 at St Joseph's, East Maitland. The
suppor t from my school and teachers
was ama zing.
Three year s ago, I began Special Olympics
training at Kurri Kurri pool. This opened
another door, to more than I ever
expec ted. It included not just swimming,
but a social network of new friends.
During this time I have travelled nor th,
south, east and west competing in different
towns and states.
Competing in the Junior National Games
in Newcastle in 2012, I gained gold, silver
and bronze medals. In October 2014
I competed in the National Games in
Melbourne and was placed second, third,
four th and fifth. The world titles will be
held in Los Angeles in 2015 and I hope to
be there !
My friend, Hayley Lowe, attends St Paul's
at Booragul. We swim in the same races
and we compete together, not against each
other, which I love. We also play netball
together in Newcastle.
At St Mar y's end -of-year assembly, I was
presented with the school community
achievement award donated by the Lions
Club of East Maitland. I was so thrilled –
what an honour!
