House Swimming 2016/17

On 15 December, Year 6 – 10 students competed in the annual AIS swim gala. The emphasis this year was on participation, with the aim to get as many students swimming as possible. The day started with the Year 9 and 10 students competing in freestyle, breast stroke, back stroke and butterfly events. The carnival culminated with a mixed freestyle team relay. It was an extremely close result, with Phoenix and Sphinx tying for 1st place. After recess, it was the turn of Year 6 – 8 students to get into the pool. The younger students swam all the same events and the participation was amazing. Sphinx were again champions, winning this division as well. There was a happy and supportive atmosphere throughout the entire day, with students cheering their friends through their events. Congratulations to all Sphinx members as they were the AIS 2016/17 House Swimming Gala Champions.
