The annual St Andrew’s College and DSG Bushman’s River Mile was held on Sunday 12 March 2023 with all the seasons in one day — but none the less, the event went off well.
There was a strong current assisting everyone towards the finish line, which made for a fast race. It was great to have so many spectators and swimmers.
The Junior River Mile was won by Zac Fletcher of Mullins House followed by Adam Ball of Espin House.

The overall House results were as follows:
1st – Upper
2nd – Armstrong
3rd – Espin
4th – Graham
5th – Mullins
6th – Merriman
