On Wednesday 13 February the boys in Year 3, 4 and 5 participated in the annual Junior School Swimming Carnival held at HBF Stadium. There were some fantastic swims in all divisions across the years. In perfect conditions for swimming and with lots of encouragement from their houses the carnival got off to a flying start with 50m Butterfly, Freestyle, Breaststroke and Backstroke races. Connor McManus, Lucas Fry and Sebastian Fugill swam beautifully across their races in Year 3 whilst Angus Mcintosh performed well in all his races in Year 4. There were some exciting races in the Year 5's with Jack Ashby and Abe Prendiville raising the bar considerably across the age group. The 25m races were just as keenly contested and there were amazing efforts from all the boys as they competed for house points that contribute to the final destination of the house shield. Every boys swim counts toward this end and it was fantastic to see everyone giving their best effort.

The final tally saw the previous champions Robert House pipped to the post by Andrew House, who triumphed, in what was a great day of racing in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
