The Senior School Swimming Carnival was held on 18th February 2020 and it was a fantastic event for students, staff and parents. I was thrilled to observe the positive participation and team spirit shown by all students on the day. The introduction of House Leaders certainly added noise in the stands, and this is something that will continue to improve as the years progress. Congratulations go to Florey House who won their second consecutive House Shield.
