Years 5 & 6 Dive Headfirst into their Interhouse Swimming Carnival

Our incredibly enthusiastic Years 5 and 6 students dove headfirst into the Interhouse Swimming Carnival this week, representing their Houses with pride and determination.

The air was buzzing with House spirit as cheers erupted from the sidelines for both the Houses and the individual swimmers. The students were thrilled to participate in all their events, from the classic races to the fun novelty races. And a special shoutout to our Year 5s, who were taking part in their first ever carnival at Santa Maria – we couldn’t be more proud!

As with any big sporting event, there were definitely some nerves in the air, especially as it was the first one for Years 5 and 6 students for 2023. We were overjoyed to see so many parents and spectators showing their support for the girls. Everyone swam their hearts out for their House, and we saw some truly impressive results from everyone in the pool.
