On Monday 11 February, our Years 7 to 12 students participated in the annual House Swimming Sports. A week earlier than usual, it presented a challenge for the House Captains, but they rallied their troops and achieved excellent participation and fantastic enthusiasm. Congratulations to the girls in Anderson and Lascelles Houses, the Anderson House Co-Captains Lily B and Eliza M and the Lascelles House Co-Captains Amy A and Sammy B. Anderson kept hold of the Swimming Cup, and Lascelles won the Participation Cup for 2019. The Captains of Daniell, Philippa D and Katia D and Captains of Bromby, Lisette B and Isabel H are also congratulated on their strong leadership and their Houses efforts.
