Thursday 15th February was an important day on the MGSC calendar with our annual swimming carnival taking place. Students walked in the gates on the morning decked out in their purple tutus, green capes, yellow hats and blue bow ties buzzing with excitement and anticipation as to what will unfold on the day. A large portion of students boarded the early buses to compete in the freestyle trial events hoping to qualify for the final race later on in the day’s program.
From diving to standing water polo to beach volleyball to house chants to staff-student freestyle relays and boat races the day was filled with plenty of opportunities to get involved and earn house points.
Although the final results have yet been revealed it looks rather close with only a few points difference between the first 3 houses. These results will be announced at the full school assembly at the end of term.
Finally a special mention to the following students who have been awarded as the age champions and will also be acknowledged at the end of term assembly. 13 year old – Eva Jenkins; 14 year old – Mya Winnell; 15 year old – Megan Kain; 16 year old – Cara Jenkins; 17 year old – Isabelle Jacques; 18 year old – Neave Harrison. Congratulations to all students.
The next big event will be our Athletics carnival to be held on Friday 20th April at Dolomore Oval. More details will be provided on Compass and on the notice board in the gym.
