Bass High School's swimming carnival this year was quite a momentous occasion. Firstly, it saw the return of a whole school swimming carnival rather than competitors only. Secondly, there was a return to the house system of banks (blue), flinders (green), hume (yellow) and parkes (red).
The response to the re-introduction of the house system by both staff and students was overwhelming. The carnival was a sea of house colours and the house spirit and rivalries was infectious.
The house captains did a magnificent job leading the house chants with hume being the winner of the house chant competition towards the end of the day.
The house relays by both staff and students and the big splash competition were highlights of the day. The house relays were hotly contested, encouraged by loud cheering from everyone on the side of the pool. The students relay was won by parkes and the staff relay was won by banks.
It was a day that was enjoyed by all. The carnival had a very positive atmosphere that left everyone in high spirits at the end of the day.
Congratulations to all!
