House Swimming Carnival
Posted: 19-Feb-2020

Swimming Sports

What a beautiful day it was for the house swimming carnival. Students had the opportunity to play basketball, bocce and volleyball and swim in a 25m event. It wasn’t all about the 50m events, however they are a strong focal point for the day. The year 12 synchronised swimming was once again a highlight of the day and something for future year levels to look forward to. The student house leaders were also able to encourage students to participate and the house leaders supported them in this.

There were a number of records broken on the day which are listed below. I am impressed by our newest members to Damascus (year 7), both Charles Snare and Charley Ward, who not only won their age group, but broke 3 and 4 records respectively! The BAS Swimming Carnival will be held at the Aquatic Centre on Wednesday March 11. Over the next week, Mrs Hexter will be attempting to put together the Damascus team to participate in the twilight carnival. Students will be informed of selection into the team ASAP.
