What a fantastic Swimming and Athletic season we’ve had!  Congratulations to all students and staff who participated in the many events that we’ve had. The competitions included the Senior House, EISM Division 1 and the EISM Champions Carnivals.  This year for the first time, a Huntingtower Swimming team also attended the Victorian All Schools Relay Championships at MSAC where our relay teams competed against the top schools in the State.  The Senior House Athletics Carnival was held at the Knox Athletics Track where for the first time the photo finish system was used which was a tremendous asset to the flow of the track events and to the accuracy of timing of each student in the sprint events.
