A family orientated night, each class also presents an item for the enjoyment of the school community (in particular, to the delight of parents). Please refer to the Awards and Achievements page.
Upon enrolment, students are placed into one of two sporting houses. Families are allocated into the same sporting house. The sporting house allocation will last for the duration of your child's time at the school.
- Red sports shirt. Maroon shorts. Available through the uniform shop.
- Blue sports shirt. Maroon shorts. Available through the uniform shop.
Naturally, the better house always wins!
The annual swimming carnival is held late in Term 4 each year. The swimming carnival is run in 2 sections.
For Prep to 7 year olds, a mini carnival is held using a range of novelty events suitable for students who are still learning to float, kick and use their 'swimming' arms.
Later in the day, 8 year old to 12 year old students complete in 25m, 50m and relays in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.
As students may progress from school to district to regional (etc.) swimming carnivals, students are required to swim at competition standards of stroke formation, and competition regulations.
