GCC Secondary Inter-House Swimming Carnival

The secondary swimming carnival this year was held in Term 1 at the Beerwah Aquatic Centre. The Senior students competed in the morning followed by the Middle School in the afternoon.

Everyone showed up for a great time and the continuous events ensured the event was a success. Bringing the carnival back to Beerwah allowed more time for novelty events and events such as the surfboard relay and bomb-off contest which were enjoyed by many.

There were some fantastic efforts from all the swimming participants and the vibrant house colours, war cries, and cheering made for an exciting atmosphere. This year ‘Australian icons’ was the carnival theme and many students made the most of the opportunity to dress up and have fun.

Competition in the pool was extremely close across most age groups with some champions being decided by the smallest of margins.

This year Zion was the house champions again having now won this event four years in a row.

Zion – 989
Sinai – 764
Ararat – 733

Throughout the day four new records were set in some outstanding swims by Chloe Turnbull, Indiah Loveday, and Jasmine Goodwin.

Congratulations to all students who managed to gather enough individual points throughout the day to win the age champion award.

Thank you to all staff, house captains, and volunteers who helped make the day a success.

This year’s boys and girls swimming age champions and record breakers are as follows…
