Swimming Carnival and Sport

Swimming Carnival 2020

On Friday 14 February, St Norbert College held the annual Interhouse Swimming Carnival at HBF Stadium. The atmosphere was fantastic all day in testing conditions that wouldn’t stop the mascots from each House making known that they were there to support their House.


The annual Spirit Bear is awarded to the House that shows the best support, fills all events and is well organised. Congratulations to Kilnacrott House and Miss Abel for winning the Spirit Bear.


The House trophy was a tightly fought contest with a number of Houses looking to take it out throughout the day. Congratulations to Magdeburg House and Mr Ah Fong for winning the House trophy. The total scores are below:

  • 1st - Magdeburg – 5151
  • 2nd - Xanten – 4998
  • 3rd - Kilnacrott – 4963
  • 4th - Prémontré – 4813
  • 5th - Tongerlo – 4811

Well done to the College Media Team, which worked all day to cover the action at HBF Arena - Captain Emma Paskett, Sasha Bitao, Theresa Titus, Jessica LeDain, Connor LeDain, Sophia Mangat, Aaron James, Anushka Kotian, Ashley Mascarenhas, Stephni Jesuthasan, Ayden Ratnasekera, Isioma Onyemgba, Jeremy Pang, Phoebe VanHeiningen and Christine Buluran. A great effort!
