GISS Swimming Carnivals 2020

Our annual GISS swimming carnivals took place during February and early March and were a great success despite the weather not always being kind to us. 

The students had a wonderful time cheering on participants from their Houses, and enthusiastically gained victory points in the pool as well as in a variety of other races and activities. The students competed in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly and received ribbons for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each race.

The new novelty races with pool noodles and diving rings were some of the favourite events, giving students who didn’t feel comfortable competing in the main stroke races the opportunity to succeed. 

The last event of each carnival day which turned Terrey Hills Swim School’s 25-metre pool into a very noisy place was the House Relay. The students gave every last bit of their energy to win their race. We already look forward to next year’s carnival!
