Inter-House Swimming Gala Success
Congratulations to all on a wonderful and successful interhouse gala. We were thrilled to see so many parents who came to support and watch their children swim and appreciate the effort made.
Congratulations to the Blue Topaz Team on winning the swimming gala overall based on all the swimming races combined. Well done to the Yellow Diamonds Team for placing second and the Green Emeralds Team for coming in at third place. Well done to the Yellow Diamonds Team on achieving the Spirit Trophy for their war-cries, cheering and enthusiasm.
Congratulations to all the children who swam remarkably well and those who received Gold, Silver and Bronze medals.
The fastest timed top swimmer overall in the boys’ heats was Austin Wallick (Grade 6) and the fastest timed top swimmer overall in the girls’ heats was Säde Tiitinen (Grade 5). Congratulations to both of these students on their performance.
Thank you to all the staff and teachers who helped make the event such a great success. Thank you, especially, to our wonderful swimming coaches Elke and Riana, for all the superb coaching and for making the children feel so confident to swim at Hillcrest. Thank you, too, to Teacher Cara from Courtney College, for taking spectacular photographs.
