Tuesday’s drizzly conditions failed to dampen spirits as our Years 7-12 students converged on Palm Beach Aquatic Centre for the annual High School Swimming Carnival. All four Houses exuded volume and vibrant colour, attired in a range of creative costumes for their inaugural carnival of the year. The College’s newest Year 12 cohort projected their leadership prowess as they led their Houses through a chorus of war cries and exciting House Challenges, including the Big Splash and the Prefect vs Teacher relay. The seniors' unrelenting passion and energy set an inspiring standard for the Year 7's first High School Carnival. 

High School students of all ages and swimming abilities attempted each race with courage and determination, cheered on by their peers. They swam continuously throughout the day's events to boost House points on a mission to be crowned the 2021 Swimming Carnival House Champions. Well done to every student who gave their very best and contributed to this important cultural Carnival. Special congratulations to Finney HOUSE who showcased their shark-like swimming skills to win the coveted House Champions title. Well done to our fastest swimmers whose outstanding performances earned them the titles of 2021 Age Champions and Record Breakers!
