Swimming Carnival Success

Despite the cooler weather which gave us a fresh start to the morning, the majority of our students attended our annual swimming carnival on Wednesday 20 February at Caringbah Leisure Centre.

We kicked off the day with Year 7 students and Years 9 and 10 PASS students participating in swim testing. Then the day of races and novelty events began. Year 12 got into the spirit of the day, dressing up, encouraging the younger students and added another element of fun to the day. The traditional Year 12 raft race proved to be a huge hit.

As the rain subsided and the temperature warmed up, it was wonderful to see so many students participating in all activities. Many students took the opportunity to test their skills in the 50 metre races, and cool down afterwards in the ever-popular novelty events. We also had a number of our talented swimmers across all years set strong results in the 100 and 200 metre events, and we look forward to watching them compete at the zone carnival this year.

The friendly competition amongst the students and staff of the four houses was great to see, with many students participating in events to gain house points, but also cheering the centre down with their war cries.  Although Greaves had the strongest representation of swimmers on the day, it was Birnie who took out the title of the Champion House. The final tally of points for each house was:

  • Birnie (blue): 481 points
  • Greaves (green):  426 points
  • Connell (red):  367 points
  • Holt (yellow):  313 points

As always, our students were fantastic representatives of our school, supporting each other both in and out of the water. Congratulations, Gymea, on another successful carnival!
