JLC Swimming Carnival

Sport & Cocurricular Wednesday 08 February 2017

The first major sporting event for 2017 was the Junior Learning Community Interhouse Swimming Carnival. This was held in Week 2 and saw a major change from previous years with the introduction of Year 3 in to the Carnival’s format.

The day exposed our students to the positive and inclusive culture that is inherent in Hillcrest Sport. This was evident in the exceptional participation in all events, along with the support that students gave one another.

Extending on the participation, the Carnival saw some exceptional individual performances with more elite swimmers showing off their talents to the College community. Special recognition goes to Gideon Burnes who broke the College Record in every event he swum in, consequently earning himself the Swimmer of The Meet Award.

Congratulations also to Carmichael house who took out the overall House Champion, and Flynn for taking out the House Spirit Award.

Special recognition also goes to the Carnival Age Champions (below) who performed exceptionally throughout the day. A special thank you to all parents and carers who assisted on the day.
