Term 1, Week 3

YEAR 3 – 6 Interhouse Swimming Carnival – IMPORTANT NOTICE 

Due to the current COVID restrictions and advice/guidelines/mandates for schools and community sport, we have made the decision to revise our Primary Interhouse Swimming Carnival format. Our goal is to manage the COVID risk as best as we can, whilst still trying to conduct some type of swimming carnival.

At this stage our Interhouse Swimming Carnival will still go ahead on Friday 5 March, however the carnival will be split in two half day sessions. Year 3 and 4 students will attend the morning session, and Year 5 and 6 students will attend the afternoon session. Students will be seated in their class groups rather than House groups this year. Please see the details below.

Date:                                     Friday 4 March 2022 (Week 5, Term 1)

Venue:                                 HBF Arena Joondalup – Kennedya Drive, Joondalup

Year 3 & 4 Carnival Time:     Bus departing school at 8.45am – bus departing HBF Arena at 12.00pm.

Year 5 & 6 Carnival Time:     Bus departing school at 11.45am – bus departing HBF Arena at 3.00pm.

What to bring/wear:

  • Students must bring all food and drink they require for the day – the Café is not accessible.
  • House Uniform, towel, thongs/sandals and bathers – no two-piece bathers please.
  • Labelled school bag or alternative backpack
  • Swimming caps and goggles are highly recommended – we encourage students to wear swimming caps that match their House colour for extra House spirit!
  • Year 3 and 4 students will be able to change out of their bathers and back into their House Uniform on arrival back at school (not at HBF Arena).


We are unfortunately unable to have any spectators at our Interhouse Swimming Carnival this year. No parents/guardians are permitted to spectate students at HBF Arena Joondalup. Parents/guardians who have volunteered to assist on the day will no longer be able to attend the carnival. We appreciate your support in this matter and are sorry that this is the case for 2022.

We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing your children swim at our Interhouse Swimming Carnival!
