Fountain Gate Secondary College (FGSC) students embraced some eccentric dos and styles during their swimming carnival held on Wednesday 6 March.
School Houses competes against one another in a variety of activities, both competitive and novelty.
The day began with students from Year 7 to Year 12 lined up for the buses, crazy hair, coloured shirts and funky sunscreen in check.
Starting off with the Year 7 races, students gallantly dived into the brisk waters at the Doveton Pool, enthusiasm undeterred by the cold, College Principal Pete Hanratty said.
“On the sidelines, the Student Leadership team was busy painting faces and beautiful henna while FGSC’s Team S.A.N.I.T.Y served up hot sausages and snacks to sate the hungry students’ appetites,” he said.
Team S.A.N.I.T.Y is currently raising money through multiple fundraisers for their 2019 trip to the US where they will be representing FGSC at the International Conference for Future Problem Solving.
“The day finished with a fashion show where students strutted their costumes down the concrete catwalk.
“Fountain Gate Secondary College aims to bring students together through days and activities that encourage team work, participation and fun in a safe and inclusive environment,” Mr Hanratty said.
