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 House if they are selected. Only one team per house swims in a relay.
Points are awarded according to the Division and place recorded:
Championships (Div A) 8, 5, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1
Individual (Div B, C and D) 5, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1, 1
Relays/Team Event 13, 8, 5, 1
Ages and year divisions are determined by the Midlands District Sporting Association (MDSA), our peak body. Ages for secondary students are ages as at December 31. Trophies are awarded for the following age and year groups.
The House Athletics Carnival consists of Individual events, Relays & team events. Races are graded according to division, and points awarded by division. Two runners per house are able to nominate for each division for each race. Division A competitors are ineligible for division B, C & D races of the same event, except for 6, 7 and 8 year old students. Team events are organised into age groups consisting of Junior (Years 1 – 3], Intermediate [Years 4 and 5], Senior [Years 6 and 7], Secondary Open [13+ yrs] and Senior Division [Year 11 and 12]). Points are awarded by division.
