House Swimming Carnival in 2023

Final Round of Summer Activities

This weekend is the final round of the Senior School 2022-23 summer season. I want say a huge thank you to students, parents, carers, convenors, staff and coaches for all of their efforts over the two terms.

In particular, I want to thank and congratulate the Year 12 students who will be playing their final round this coming weekend. Our 1sts Touch Football team will be playing in the grand final this Saturday at Queens Park after an impressive performance last Saturday, and would love some extra support.

House Swimming Carnival Boasts Impressive Swim Times

Last Friday, Years 7-12 competed in the 2023 House Swimming Carnival at Des Renford Leisure Centre. There were some impressive times swum, as well as some passionate House relays and chants on the day.

A huge thank you to our heads of House, staff and in particular the Campus Team for all of their hard work in making this day happen.

In a closely contested event, Brennan were eventually crowned the House Swimming Carnival champions for 2023. I hope you enjoy the photos above.

The following Monday, 20 March is the commencement of our winter season for a number of activities, and we will be sending out the training schedule early next week. Students must ensure they have all of the necessary equipment to commence the winter season, including mouth-guards, boots and shin pads that fit.


Well done to the following students on their recent selections for CAS:

  • Hirav Ghandi – CAS Cricket
  • Charlie Farrington – CAS Tennis

I also want to congratulate Ms Emma Halpin and the Public Speaking Team for hosting 120 speakers last Friday night in the CSDA competition. Special mention to James Peate and Ewan McDonald on advancing to the upcoming finals.

Best wishes to all teams and activities this weekend.
