Swimming Carnival 2013


Balkuin triumphs as the 2013 Harristown SHS swimming champs ... go Green! Bonda won the house spirit award. Red was cheering everywhere.

The 2013 Interhouse Swimming Carnival was another great event to start the year off, with an increase in the number of students competing and the stands filled with enthusiastic supporters dressed in their house colours and themes. There was plenty of talk regarding who might take out the Overall House Champion Trophy, especially considering the mixed results from last year’s various carnivals. For the first time since 1996, Balkuin were Overall House Champions with 578 points, followed by Dherwain, Barang and Bonda. Balkuin house also took out the Boys Champion House with Barang convincing winners of the Girls Champion House.

Congratulations to these houses and swimmers on a fantastic effort, and thank you to all staff and students who helped to make this one of the best carnivals to date.

Our next Interhouse Carnival to be held is the Cross Country, scheduled for the 26th of March 2013 (Week 9, Term 1).  Will Balkuin continue their rein of Interhouse Carnival wins?
