On the 27 January 2012, the whole Prep School arrived full of spirit, and colour! Today was the day that the Prep’s Interhouse Swimming Gala was to take place. Bendigo, Millwood, and Jubilee were to compete against one another to win the Gala, and the Spirit Cup. The Gala started with the Foundation Phase at 08:30. Spirit was high with everyone cheering for their teams. After the Foundation Phase had finished, half time scores were announced – Jubilee 70, Millwood 102, and Bendigo in the lead with 118.
Yet again the spirit was high, with swimmers racing across the pool. At the end of the Intermediates’ gala, they had the relays, swimmers going back-and-forth across the pool doing all the different strokes. The Gala was finally over. Bendigo won the Spirit Cup, House Captains, Tamara Foyn & Scott Armstrong went up to collect their invisible Spirit Trophy and shake hands with Mr Cross. The final scores were: Jubilee-206, Bendigo-354, and Millwood winning with 451. Well done Millwood! A big thank you to all the teachers, coaches and support staff.
