Inter-House Swimming Carnival

ECC's Inter-house Swimming Carnival Beats the Heat!

Our recent Inter-house Swimming Carnival took place at Bayswater Waves on Thursday, the 15th of February. Despite the scorching 40-degree heat, the spirit of competition and camaraderie among our four house factions—Nightingale, King, Garlett, and Flynn—made the event a resounding success.

Students from all year levels showcased their swimming prowess in a variety of events, including freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke, and the highly anticipated relay races. The vibrant atmosphere at Bayswater Waves was electrifying, as students cheered on their housemates and celebrated the outstanding achievements of their peers.

This year’s carnival saw Nightingale House emerge as the overall winner, demonstrating exceptional teamwork and individual talent. While Nightingale may have claimed the top spot,  each house demonstrated their commitment to the event, making it a memorable day for all involved.

The weather threw us a curveball with the temperature soaring to 40 degrees, but our resilient students and staff weathered the heat admirably. The carnival was a testament to the college’s commitment to providing students with opportunities to excel in various areas, even in challenging conditions.

Aside from the house victories, it’s important to acknowledge the individual accomplishments of our students. Many swimmers achieved personal bests, showcasing their dedication to training and their determination to improve. We applaud each and every participant for their hard work and sportsmanship.
