This years Secondary Swimming Carnival was a great success. There were some exceptional efforts from all participants throughout the day and the vibrant house colours and loud cheering made for an exciting atmosphere. All enjoyed the novelty races, fashion of the pool and the equally hilarious belly flop competition.
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 and it was Sinai who this year showed the most enthusiasm to win the spirit award.
Competition in the pool was extremely close across most age groups with some champions being decided by as few as three points. Students swam in either the A or B division races according to their previous nominations and trials. 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 15 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.
