Secondary Swimming Carnival - Glasshouse Christian College

Secondary Swimming Carnival

  • February 19, 2014

For the first time this year the swimming carnival was separated into Primary and Secondary events. This meant more time for novelty races and even a hotly contested fashion of the pool award won by Ella Mickelson dressed in very colourful attire.

With the absence of Primary students the Beerwah Pool was still bustling with excited Secondary students. With all students dressed in team colours and cheering throughout the day, the rivalry was at an all time high. House war cries resounded regularly throughout the day and it was Zion who this year showed the most enthusiasm to win the spirit award.

Competition was extremely close across most age groups with some champions being decided by just a few points. Students swam in divisions according to their efforts on trial day and it was a fantastic spectacle to see the regular close finishes. Sinai gained an early lead on the points tally however it was once again Ararat who emerged as well deserved house champions.

The standard of swimming continues to improve as this year 37 new records were set in some outstanding swims. Congratulations to all students who managed to qualify to swim at the district carnival. In particular our age champions and record breakers.

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