Tuesday 28 February saw Melbourne put on a stunning day for our annual McKinnon Swimming Carnival. Sunshine ensured that the day kicked off with a mighty display of costumes from our Hollywood Heroes theme.
For the first time in a while, the swimming events were very popular (last year was 15 degrees!). Other events such as water polo and beach volleyball saw a record number of students from all year levels participating to get their house the win. McKinnon records were broken (mainly by Will Sharp) and there were plenty of ribbons for outstanding efforts across the day. Results are listed below:
Sound and Filming
The annual "WoMankinnon" dance off between staff and students was a highlight of the carnival as always. The students put in lots of effort and almost turned the dance into a concert, such was the length of the dance. However, the staff were once again victorious paying tribute to stars that passed away in 2016 including George Michael and Prince.
At the end of the day it was once again Gilmore winning the overall trophy for the 6th straight swimming sports. Congratulations to Gilmore, and thanks to all students who participated and helped across the day. A big thank you to all the staff who made the day amazing.
