In the scorching heat of Friday the 27th of January, an event that many look forward to each year took place at Beaconhurst High School’s very own swimming pool. The annual interhouse gala was a day filled with excitement, fun and competition, which was clearly enjoyed by all who attended. There were a variety of competitive swimming events that took place, amongst a few fun events such as a search for a unique coin exclusively for grade 8s, all competing for a week of “matric privilege”. After a long day of fun, it was time to tally up points and get down to the serious announcement, the winning house of 2017. In first place was Hillcrest (Yellow House), second place was Avalon (Blue House) and in third place Rustic (Red House). Well done to all who competed and a special well done to the record breakers.
