The House flags flew proudly at the Junior School Inter-House Swimming Carnival on Wednesday.  The loud cheering and chanting echoed around the pool all day.  It was wonderful to have Year 12 students visiting throughout the day to help cheer and support our students. Courage and resilience were displayed by all students as they completed their races.  The final race of the day was the much-anticipated Staff vs House Captains race.  Thank you to Mr Andy Muller, Mr Timmy Bristow, Mr Daniel Ellis, Miss Georgia Legg, Mr Harry Bayles, Mr Ben Findlay, Mr Josh Freestone and Miss Maisie Edwards for joining in the fun!
