Swimming Carnival

The Norwood Swimming Pool was inundated with sea creatures on Monday 3 February for our annual Swimming Carnival. Many students took to the water to participate in the traditional races and the very popular novelty events. The leadership and organisation from our four House Captains was tested in the very first week of school and I commend our House Captains, Gabriella, Bianca, Madison and Lucinda on their outstanding leadership, adaptability and enthusiasm, which was displayed on Monday and throughout the lead up to the carnival.

On behalf of the Sports Department and College we congratulate the following age group Champions and runners up:
