Wishart Win Again!

March 03, 2017 at 11:33 AM

For the fifth year in succession, Wishart have achieved a head start in the term, claiming victory at the Girls’ School Swimming Sports. The day got off to a great start, beginning with the Year 1-3 students. For a beginner, the full length of the pool is a long way to go, but the Juniors put all their energy into it and gave it their best shot. The seniors did a fantastic job assisting the juniors in the pool when they needed it, cheering and encouraging them along the way.

The Middle and Senior School finalists stepped up to the mark in the afternoon, beginning with the 100m freestyle. As the starter beep sounded, the girls dived into the water, the non-swimmers lining the pool shouted their House chants and cheered on their House representatives. Next was backstroke and breaststroke followed by butterfly – what an impressive display of skills across all swimming styles. It was great to see the girls dressing up in all sorts of costumes representing their Houses with pride. Wishart House leaders even started a Conga Line all the way around the pool during one of the swimming breaks. Well done girls on your amazing House spirit. 

Congratulations to all swimmers, age-group champions and Wishart for holding onto their title at the first house event for the year.
