The Middle School Inter-House Swimming Carnival took place on 20th February 2020. This year saw the introduction of House Leaders and they worked hard with students to ensure that each House had a chant which added a competitive atmosphere in the stands. The event ran smoothly with students, staff and parents all entering into the spirit of the occasion. The competition was close throughout, with a very high participation rate. Lingiari House emerged as Overall House Champions after a 6 year wait!
