Victory is sweet in the pool

SWIMMING is a very important part of the Victory College physical education program.

The water skills students learn in their lessons enables them to safely participate in many of the water-based sports Queenslanders enjoy.

Swimming is also an excellent sport to develop general physical fitness and skills as it requires students to learn skills within an environment not natural to them.

Victory College students held their annual swimming carnival recently at the Gympie Memorial Pool.

House spirit was in abundance as the four houses – Phoenix, Caledonian, Wilmott and Eldorado – battled for supremacy.

With many war cry competitions throughout the day, Wilmott came out on top to win the house cheers, with special mention to Michael Dooley who cheered all day for his house.

There could only be one winning house overall and once again, it was Phoenix, winning for the third consecutive year.

House captains did a fabulous job encouraging their teams.
