Swimming and Athletics Carnivals

Traditionally our annual swimming and athletic carnivals are energetic and colourful community events. All students are required to attend and the participation rate is outstanding.

Once at the venue all students dress up in House themes which ensures a very colourful “carnival” atmosphere. At St Joseph’s there are 6 houses – Barnes, Carroll, Dewey, Lonergan, Raftery and Tacey.

Staff and student house leaders ensure all girls are well drilled in their chants and cheers which create an electrifying atmosphere.

From these carnivals a team is selected to represent St Joseph’s at BBSSSA level.
