Today, all students in Grade 4-6 participated in the 2018 TPPS House Swimming Carnival. It was a fun day for all involved, with students swimming in a variety of 50m, 25m and novelty events to earn points for their house. the lead changed throughout the day, however Chivers ended the day on top for the second year in a row. The culmination of the event was a hotly contested 6 x 50m student vs teacher relay, with the students winning by the smallest of margins.
Congratulations to all students for starting off the year on a fantastic note and good luck to all those students who have been chosen to represent the school at the Templestowe District Swimming Carnival on Friday 23rd February.
