Introducing houses is a great way to get students involved and have fun as well as bring in competition. Swimming Sports really brought people together this year. There were a lot of friendships formed and teachers got to connect with the students too. We encouraged all students who felt comfortable in the water to give the races a go. It was impressive to see students out of the classroom and competing with all sorts of strategies. Congratulations to everyone who made it in the final.
