Gellion win Swimming Sports

Gellion were victors for the fourth year in a row at the interhouse swimming sports last Friday. Although conditions were more conducive to jumpers and  thermals, students really got in to the swing of things and performed well even though some of them had turned blue from the cold! Events went along at a steady pace with some of the highlights being, the great effort everyone one put in for a successful day whether swimming or spectating, some great costumes to create a great atmosphere,  the staff student race which saw staff double lap a couple of teams for a big win, the science class cardboard boat race and the novelty event for non swimmers.

Results: 1st Gellion, 2nd Whitney, 3rd McMillan 4th Livingston
