On Thursday 19 February a talented and committed squad of swimmers from Victoria Point State High School made the early morning trip to the Sleeman Sport Complex at Chandler to compete at the Bayside District Swimming Carnival. 

This carnival promised to be particularly exciting, as it was the first Bayside secondary carnival event to include Year 7 students and two new schools to the district (Wynnum SHS and Bayview State College). The expectation communicated to our students at the start of the day was for them to give their best effort, knowing they had the full support of the squad and no pressure on them. What followed was amazing, with students trying their hardest, participating in extra races that needed to be filled and never giving up. Senior students Luke Bellamy and Nicole Smith were inspirational, competing in every possible race, demonstrating true leadership. 

The results also reflected a wonderful day. Victoria Point State High School finished 7th out of 13 schools (including local private schools), our best placing in the last 7 years. When considering just State High Schools, of which there are 7, we placed 3rd, finishing only behind Wellington Point SHS and Cleveland SHS. This is an exciting result proving that swimming is on the rise at our school. As always, there are also individual achievements to be recognised, with five students qualifying for the Bayside team to compete at the regional carnival. Congratulations to Cody Torkington (Year 7), Owen Jefferies (Year 8), Candace Torkington (Year 9), Matthew Devlin (Year 9) and Luke Harvey (Year 10).​
