Throughout the Year
College Swimming Carnival is a popular event on the college calendar drawing a large field of participants. Events are held in freestyle, butterfly, back-stroke and diving. A large number of students move on to the district sports with successful competitors moving on to zone competition.
The College Athletics Carnival is a whole school activity held at a local professional athletics track and featuring a full round of track and field events. Students who qualify are then able to go on to district, zone and even state finals.
All participants in both Swimming and Athletic Carnivals receive Tribe points for participation and achievement. Students dress in their Tribe colours for both of these events in order to encourage and support their teams.
