On Friday 19 March, the whole School came together for the annual House Swimming Carnival. The sun was shining and spirits were high, with staff and students excited to be back in the swing of things.
Our two new Houses; Warran and Yarra made their carnival debut, but it was Birt that was victorious on the day.
Competition was fierce and records were broken as students from all year levels took to the pool. Our Year 12 students enjoyed their rite of passage events, participating in the synchronised swimming and water polo.
