Swimming Carnival success

Congratulations to all our students

With the sun beaming and a comfortable temperature of around 27c,  approximately 1000 Cecil Hills High School students attended our annual Swimming Carnival on Wednesday 6 February.


The day started off with the customary house war cries,  creating a competitive atmosphere amongst all students. Then the races began. We were again mesmerised by the fish like talents of the Prasad family who cleaned up in every event they participated in, resulting in records being broken.  Renae broke the 17yrs girls 100m freestyle by over five seconds.


The strong tradition of Year 11 and  Year 12 dressing up in their favourite characters continued and students also had the opportunity of enjoying the facilities of Prairiewood Leisure Centre's Aquatopia Water Park which includes the giant slides, the adventure aqua tower, wave rider and much more.


At the end of the day we had the following age champions:


12yrs -  Briarna Nile 

13yrs - Montana Wasif

14yrs - Michelle Prasad

15yrs - Loren Thai

16yrs - Jasmine Quach

17yrs - Renae Prasad



12yrs -  Adriano Rotondaro

A great team effort

For a carnival to be run so early in the term as a new school year begins, I cannot thank the entire Cecil Hills High School community enough for your support to ensure this day was a success.  A  special mention goes out to all the PDHPE staff who do a lot of behind the scenes work that you just don’t see.  To all the staff in the office who help with processing payments and notes and especially the last minute collection of money and notes from students on the morning of the event - thank you!  Without everyone’s support and hard work, carnivals like this cannot run smoothly and successfully.


Yours in sport
