The 2016 Macquarie College Interhouse Swimming Carnivals are just around the corner, and are an energetic way to start the new School year!  Junior School (Year 2-6) and Senior School students will take part in a full schedule of races at The Forum, University of Newcastle Callaghan Campus.

Competitors will be vying for highly coveted House Points as well as podium positions in a variety of individual and team races at the Junior School Carnival Wednesday 3rd February.  In 2015, Charlton competitors led the JS Swimming tally, also going on to claim the 2015 JS Sports House honours at the end of the year. 

Competitors will hit the water in the Senior School Carnival Thursday 4th February, with the best personal and team performances in mind.  The 2016 Dobell House captain, Kendall Williams, is fresh off a string of Paralympic pre-selection events and will be rallying her troops to give their all as Dobell House defends their 2015 Swimming Carnival and overall 2015 Interhouse victory.

Fancy dress in House colours is an exciting feature of the day, with eye-opening costumes, face paint and rallying cheers from students and staff alike showing their team spirit! 

Will 2016 Swimming carnival results be a strong indicator of the end of year Interhouse results?  Can the House captains lead their troops to deliver the catchiest, wittiest cheers which will have their oppositions rolling in the aisles?  Or will we see future swimming stars clearing the lanes with their superb abilities as they strive for higher honours?

The answers to these and many more questions will be answered soon!  Good luck to all students competing in this year’s Carnivals. 

Parents and Guardians are welcome to attend. 

Please see the Event Outline and Parent Flyer sent home to parents, and available also via the Swimming Carnival entries in Google Calendars.
