    18 School Swimming Records Broken...


    On Monday 8th February we held our Senior School Swimming Carnival at Warringah Aquatic Centre. It was a very exciting day for all students and spirits were high as everyone represented their Houses. 


    Congratulations to Matthew H and Alexandra M, who won their respective "Champion of Champion" races, being crowned as the fastest swimmers at St Luke's despite only being in Year 9!


    A fantastic effort also by all students who swam, resulting in the highest number of School records being broken, including the Chisholm House relay team who broke the "Best of the Best" relay record. A whopping 18 records were broken, stretching as far back as far as 1983!


    Special mention to Luke H who broke almost every Swimming Record in his age division. Full details of the records broken below:
