During February primary students had swimming lessons at the Wycheproof pool to familiarise them with water safety and protocol.
Secondary students competed in the House Swimming Sports, with a win to Broadway, and then competed at the NCD Swimming Sports at St Arnaud. While Wycheproof did not have any winners at the St. Arnaud meet, students tallied enough places to earn the Standardised Aggregate Shield.
The 2017 School Captains, House Captains and Class Captains include School Captains , Joseph Fawcett and Mary-Anne Pollard, who will lead the way for all the junior representatives and look forward to a very productive year
