The 2019 House swim carnival was held on Friday in fantastic conditions at Northcote Swimming Pool. 

The Senior boys started the day with their events running from 9:20am - 12:00pm.  The morning session was split into three sections.  One year level moves to the novelty pool were all students are encouraged to participate and support their house.  Points are awarded for the house with the most entrants.  Body boards, pool noodles, water polo balls are all used in modified relays and numerous events with boys looking to get as many house points as possible.  Whilst the novelty events are on a second year level heads out to the Volleyball arena where house teams play four games to determine final rankings.  At the same time the third year level is in the main pool contesting twenty individual events and three relay events.  All year levels rotate through each of the three activities throughout the morning.  Congratulations to all houses who did an awesome job supporting their fellow swimmers.

The Senior House Trophy was presented prior to Senior boys departing the pool. Congratulations to Lavalla house who took out the Senior section of the carnival.
