Students from Murrumbidgee Regional High School braved 46 degree heat and made their way to the aquatic centre for the annual swimming carnival on Friday afternoon.
The super-school will be hosting a total of two carnivals this year, with the first featuring only nominated students between year 9 and 12.
Within that cohort, two students stunned parents and teachers with their ability last week, shattering a combined total of six records.
Samantha Taylor broke the 16-year-old girls 25 metre freestyle, 50 metre backstroke and 50 metre breaststroke records.
Wil Donaldson broke the 16-year-old boys 200 metre freestyle, 50 metre breaststroke and 50 metre butterfly records.
The first-ever merged high school swimming carnival saw stunning success, with parents and teachers now looking ahead to the second stage, which will feature solely year 7 and 8 students.
That carnival is scheduled to be held at Griffith Regional Leisure and Aquatic Centre on February 10.
It has been Australia's lost summer. Drought, hail, floods and bushfires have ravaged communities all over the nation.
Despite everything, the selfless actions of friends, family, neighbours, strangers, local groups and volunteer organisations have inspired us and strengthened the bonds of our communities.
