House Swimming, 2 July 2024

HOUSE SWIMMING EVENT – Tuesday 2 July 2024

If your child wishes to participate in this House event, she will make her way from school to Splash Palace, exiting the back gate and follow the path to the pool.  There she will change and sit with her House at the shallow end of the pool.  House leaders will take rolls which will be sent back to school to confirm attendance.

Time: 9.00am-12 noon

Venue: Splash Palace

Food: Bring food and water with you. Limited canteen facilities will operate at the pool. No one is allowed to leave the pool during the event.

Your child is automatically in the events she enters herself in on the day.  There will be non-competitive, and competitive events with a variety of swimming strokes and fun House relays.

Your child may wear House colours. School uniform is required on return to school for afternoon classes.  Your child must bring togs, towel, goggles and any other swimming equipment or medical requirements, eg asthma inhaler.  Please ensure that your childs’s health information is up to date with Student Services.
