Sports carnivals are an important part of students’ experience at Gingin District High School. The school athletics carnival is a compulsory attendance event. Students may nominate for participation in the swimming carnival. Students can be involved in a range of extra-curricula sporting activities including interschool carnivals and other sporting events.
Swimming Carnival Rules
Students may compete in only one individual race for any stroke (i.e. either a Division A or Division B of the same stroke). Championship points are earned only in all Division A events. Placing is determined by place judges in the final of a given event. Novelty events are sometimes included, and students may also participate in relays for their Faction if they are selected. Only one team per house swims in a relay.
Points are awarded according to the Division and place recorded:
