Years 7-12 House Swimming
Tuesday 20th February our Year 7-12 students were involved in our annual swimming sports event.
House teachers and captains did a great job to ensure that everyone could be involved, and many students participated out of their age group or performed ‘way outside’ their comfort zone; to ensure their team could get maximum points. All those students that turned up, swam, supported each other and did their best should be very proud of their effort.
Age Group Champions
Junior Girls: Tash Killen & Holly Fowler
Junior Boys: Oliver Martin & Jock McGavin
Intermediate Girls: Alice Tanner
Intermediate Boys: Todd McDonald
Senior Girls: Kismet McCarroll
Senior Boys: Jackson Boyden
