HICES Swimming Carnival
This month, 35 students from Years 2-6 represented Pittwater House at the HICES Swimming Carnival at the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre.
Pittwater House competed in the Division 2 level of this event against 8 other schools from around Sydney, Central Coast and the Blue Mountains to bring home 46 ribbons in our division.
Pittwater House Girls' College relay team came 1st and our Grammar School relay team came 2nd. Special congratulations to Daniel O'Hara (Year 3) Wren Lockhart (Year 6) and James Pinnington (Year 6) who made it into the HICES swim team and will be competing at the CIS Championships later this month.
CDSSA Swimming Carnival
The CDSSA Swimming Carnival was held also this month with 35 students from Years 7-12 representing Pittwater House in almost every event possible. It was the most rewarding and successful Swimming Carnival Pittwater House has participated in in many years.
Pittwater House students broke 3 records: Jayke Rees in 100m Freestyle, Girls 15/16 200m Relay and Boys 17/18 200m Relay.
The team brought home 6 Age Champions: Martin Wensing, Jayke Rees, Andrew Mahn, Isaac Smith, Callum Howe and Ashleigh Mahn.
Pittwater House scooped the pool winning all 5 of the 5 trophies which were the: Junior Champion Trophy, Intermediate Champion Trophy, Senior Champion Trophy, Aggregate Champion Trophy and Overall School Champion.
