Finney House - Masters of the Pool
Swimming Carnival 2020
Finney House won the Swimming Carnival for the third year in a row.
What a fabulous day was had at the Nerang Aquatic Centre on Wednesday with the Year 3 - Year 8 students. This was the last all-school Swimming Carnival.
In 2021, the Year 7 to 9 students will compete in their very first High School Swimming Carnival in week 2 of Term 1.
Finney threw out the challenge to the other three houses early in the day by winning the war cry with a powerful and energetic performance, and they continued their dominance throughout the day.
Final overall house positions were:
1st: Finney 894 points
2nd: Tyndale 679 points
3rd: Newton 670 points
4th: Rayleigh 659 points
