Sports – House Swimming Carnival
Irwin Takes House Swimming Carnival Second Year Running
On Tuesday, 8 March 2022 St Albans Secondary College staff and students braved the not-so-warm weather to attend the annual House Swimming Carnival at Oak Park Leisure Centre.
House spirit was high, and all students got involved in the spirit of the day with lots of participation in the competitive races and the novelty events. Students were able to earn points for their House by participating in novelty and timed events and extra point were allocated to top finishers.
The day ended with the opening of the water slide and the huge blow-up inflatable. This allowed all students to have the opportunity to participate and enjoy the day.
A huge congratulations to every student who participated to the best of their ability and to all the staff for their supervision and involvement. Special mention to the following students who have since qualified for the Western Region Swimming Championships: Allan Duong (9), Zoe Edwards (7), Steven Lam (7), Sarah Mai (10), Adrian Mai (8), Vincent Nguyen (7), Doan Nguyen (10), Andy Nguyen (8), Apirana Nicol (7), Madison Pacheco-Sio (10), Dylan Pham (7), Enki Van (10).
Finally, a big congratulations to Irwin House who took out the 2022 House swimming championships two years running. Well done!
Thanks to all who made the carnival a success.
“Swimming carnival was an exciting break from school because there were plenty of activities to do like competing in the swimming sports and joining in at the novelty events. BUT the most thrilling thing was the slides….seeing other people go down at incredible speeds was something out of this world.” – Vuk Vujatovic 9D
“The swimming carnival was a very fun event to go to and organise. I loved the bustling and carefree atmosphere of the day and I had a lot of fun working with the other House captains.” – Tina Le 8H
