THE annual St Francis College Inter-House Swimming Gala recently splashed off at Liquid Lines in Cape St Francis.

Children of all levels of competency got to participate in the initial Splash-In Gala. Although no points are scored for the Splash-In events, each child regardless of age or competence, is assured of an opportunity to take part. Then all the children got behind their houses with war cries and chants for the Inter House Gala which followed. The graded swimmers who were all pre-timed to ensure they were competing in completely fair competition, swam their hearts out for precious house points.

The winning house of the day was the Yellowtails House, followed by The Red Romans in second place and Musselcrackers a brave third.

There were some great swims on the day and certainly a lot of fun.
