The 2021 Secondary and Primary Inter-house Swimming Carnivals were incredible events once again this year, starting the Freshwater Christian College sporting year off with exciting energy. Students were told to come dressed as characters from their given themes from Disney movies. Sharks had ‘Disney Classics’, Crocs had ‘Star Wars’, and Barras with ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’. The three houses brought some exhilarating competition to the carnivals with intimidating war-cries, fun novelty events, nail-biting relays, together with lively music and dancing making the house spirit shine through. In the Secondary carnival, there were some outstanding individual performances on the day, with some students winning all of their events across the day. The Sharks swooped up the competition while knocking heads with the Crocs, with the overall lead changing numerous times throughout the day. In the Primary Carnival, the competition was friendly but fierce across the day, with students stepping up when it was their time to shine. The winner has not been announced for Primary Carnival yet, but regardless of who wins, the three houses can be proud of their efforts in their first major sporting event of the year. Well done Freshwater students.
