Millicent High School looks set to stage its annual swimming carnival at the Millicent Swimming Lake on February 9.
The lake was originally scheduled to close at the end of the summer school holidays on Sunday to allow a proposed major redevelopment to proceed.
A range of factors has delayed any such work and so the council endorsed a staff recommendation to its January monthly meeting to extend the swimming season.
The only proviso is the lake not exceed its water allocation.
All going well, the four houses at MHS will be keenly competing for bragging rights in the competitive section.
By mid-afternoon, the tempo will relax and novelty events will be staged.
The best-performing MHS swimmers will then head to Penola the following week for the annual interschool swimming meet.
