Dear Parents and Caregivers,
You are most welcome to attend this year’s swimming carnival on Thursday 29 March at the Baywave Aquatic Centre, Mount Maunganui.
There is a small entry fee for parents/supporters and seating at the pools is limited, so we encourage parents/caregivers to bring their own seat to view pool side.
All Y9 students will be bused to the pools this year and are expected to swim.
Please CLICK HERE to register for your events
There will be competitive races for our most competent swimmers and non-competitive events for other Y9 students. Please pre-enter and select from these events if you are a competitive swimmer.
25m Freestyle, Breaststroke, Backstroke
50m Freestyle, Breaststroke, Backstroke, Butterfly
100m Freestyle, Individual Medley
Note: Competitive swimmers must enter at least 5 of the events above.
Swimming registrations must be made on the College Website under Sport then Swimming.
The 200m Freestyle will be the first event starting at 9.00 am so those students competing in this event must make their own way to the pool. A warm up time will be permitted for this.
Students are permitted to dress in House colours, but NO FACE PAINT. Arrive ready to swim, with togs on and appropriate footwear for around the pool.
It is essential that all students bring a water bottle to assist with hydration throughout the day. Also, everyone must have a packed lunch and snacks as there will be no allowance for students to leave the pools or use the pool shop.
Buses have been booked to leave school at 8.45am and to be back at Aquinas by 3.00pm in time to connect with normal school departures. Students living close to Baywave may go straight there. Please indicate on the on-line entry whether you need bus transport from school in the morning.
Students who regularly drive to school, should come to school as normal and then take the buses provided over to the pools.
Any parents or caregivers who are available to assist on the day as a timekeeper will be welcomed. Please indicate this on the on-line entry form or contact me at school: email@example.com or phone: 543 2400 Ext 223.
