Wow, what an amazing spirit the Swimming Carnival had to it last Friday. It was incredible to see all the girls getting in there and doing their best and having fun in the process. So many highlights, from the entry into the pool by the houses to Bella Murphy swimming 100m Butterfly with so much determination and then the whole school cheering her on. The fantastic swimming achieved by all the girls, the house war cries, the inter-year relay that was won by the year 11’s and the final dance by the Year 12’s. It is just so uplifting to see the girls getting in and having fun.
There were some outstanding swims throughout the day with four records broken, three by Cara Cronje and one by Isabella Kings, Congratulations to you both. There is nothing better than watching someone who does their sport well and to watch a swimmer seemingly so effortlessly swim is a pleasure to watch.
Congratulations to all girls who got in the pool as you all helped out your house to gain points. Well done girls.
It gives us pleasure to provide you with official results from the Interhouse Middle and Senior Years Swimming Carnival.
