Congratulations to Iona on winning the 55th  IGSSA WA Swimming Carnival in 2019. St Mary's finished closely behind in second position (by 3 points), and St Hilda's finished in third position in what was a competitive Swim Meet contested in great spirit. It's Iona's first time back at the top of the podium since their dominant reign in 2008 - 2011. 9 records were broken on the evening!

The IGSSA Swimming Carnival is held in Term 1 between all 8 IGSSA Member Schools and includes competitors from Year 7 to 12. It is the first big event on the IGSSA sporting calendar.

The 2019 Carnival will be held on Friday the 15th of March at HBF Stadium.

The carnival was first held in 1965. It was traditionally held at Beatty Park in Leederville, but moved to Challenge Stadium in 2009. The meet is officiated by Swimming WA Officials and the Host School.  The 2018 Carnival will be held at HBF Stadium on Friday the 9th of March with St Hilda's as the Host School. The first event starts at 6pm concluding by 9pm.

Doors to the public open at 5.30pm, and entry is by ticket only (limited number available from your school). There will be restricted vision tickets available for purchase on the evening at door 8 from 5.30pm ($5).

Spectators are asked to park in the Challenge Stadium Carpark off Stephenson Ave (in carpark 3 & 4) and enter the stadium through the main entrance and reception area. It is mandatory that HBF stadium inspects bags prior to entry into the stands.

Competitors that are getting picked up by their parents must arrange to meet outside the Challenge Stadium main entrance (not in the reception area of Challenge)
