Thursday 25 February saw students arrive at HBF Stadium for the annual Interhouse Swimming Carnival. After all joining in the Australian anthem, the competition was on for the House cheer competition. If my ears serve me right, Forrest brought the most house spirit with a winning roaring chant.
The official events started with a day full of activities; in Pool A, a fierce competition of freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke, butterfly and relays. Pool B saw an ongoing lapathon, whereby students gained house points for each lap of the pool they completed. Finally, the rotations also included water polo games, diving and novelty water relays.
The last event of the day was the Queen and King of the pool, the fastest 8 students across Years 7 – 12 competing for the title. All in all, it was another highly successful day in the life of Kennedy, the carnival points were incredibly close, breaking Eyre’s five-year winning streak, Stirling was crowned the winners of the Interhouse Swimming Carnival for 2021. Well done Stirling, Mr Austen, House Captains and Stirling students. A huge congratulations to every student who participated to the best of their ability and to all the staff for their supervision and involvement.
