Swimming Carnivals: House spirit rules

SS swim Term 1 Week 35

Wenona Swimming Carnivals are like no other… a riot of colour, camaraderie, sportsmanship and great House spirit!

SS swim Term 1 Week 3

Swimming Carnival season at Wenona kicked off last Friday, with our Senior School heading once more to North Ryde pool. Our Year 12 students embraced the tradition of dressing up for the event, using their creativity to put together some incredibly imaginative costumes to fit the different House themes.

The atmosphere and friendly rivalry between Houses was on display even before the girls had boarded the buses from Wenona.

House spirit continued in the pool at North Ryde, with some incredible swimming and equally impressive support from the sidelines. The chants and cheers spurred competitors on to great success.

There were so many incredible achievements in the pool on the day, and we would like to congratulate all the competitors for their efforts. In particular, Chloe in the 12/13yrs category who set a new school record in the 50m Backstroke, with a time of 38.75, and a new school record in the 50m butterfly, with a time of 36.38. And Lily in the 16yrs category, who set a new school record in the 50m Backstroke, with a time of 31.90. Well done to both girls!

As always, the competition between Houses was intense, but the winner of the 2019 House Cup for the 8th consecutive year was Hooke! And the winner of the House Cheers was School. Great job everyone!
