House Swimming Carnival 2020

On Friday 21 February Tintern Grammar held the annual House Swimming Carnival at the pool. On a cool day the girls’ carnival got underway first and the house spirit and participation were fantastic from the beginning. The barracking was deafening from the girls as they urged their fellow students to swim their best. The carnival remained extremely close all morning with all houses a realistic chance to win the trophy until the last couple of races. The result of the carnival came down to the final relay with two houses able to win. Congratulations to Dann/Watt on winning the Girls’ House Swimming Carnival for 2020.

The Boys’ House Swimming Carnival started in the afternoon and the participation and house spirit was also of a high standard. The boys swam their best for their houses in each race and although the carnival wasn’t as close as the girls’, it was still very close for most of the afternoon. The final couple of events also determined the winner of the carnival. Congratulations to Gordon/Grant on winning the Boys’ House Swimming Carnival for 2020.
