All students are expected and encouraged to participate in the Year 7 & 8 School Swimming Sports. This year’s programme will have both competitive and non-competitive events and parents are most welcome to attend. We suggest you bring your own chair as seating is limited.
The scheduled start time is 9.00am so we would like all students to be at the Aquatic Centre prior to that time so that roll checks can be completed. Students who are able to make their own way to and from the Greerton Aquatic Centre are encouraged to do so. For those students who require transport to the event, we have booked buses to take them to the Aquatic Centre from school departing at 8.45am. Students can travel to school as usual, assemble in the courtyard and teachers will organize them on to the buses. They will be returned to school by 3.00pm to catch the afternoon buses home.
All students are expected to enter the 25m freestlye, breaststroke and backstroke. Full assistance and encouragement will be given to all students to help them complete this event.
The programme will incorporate competitive swimming events interspersed with some fun relays for the non-competitive swimmers.
Any students unable to get wet for genuine reasons must have a signed note from home which is to be given to their homeroom teacher.
The 100m Freestyle will be the first event starting at 9.00am. A mini-van will be available to transport students entering this event from school to the pool on Tuesday morning rather than waiting for the buses. However if you are entering this event and can be dropped directly to the pool at Greerton this would be helpful. A warm up time will be permitted for this.
Due to the large number of students who will be in attendance, it is essential that all students bring a water bottle to assist with hydration throughout the day. Also everyone must have a packed lunch as there will be no allowance for students to use the pool shop.
Further organization will take place in your son/daughters’ homeroom.
Any parents or caregivers who are available to assist on the day as a timekeeper will be welcomed. Please contact me at school: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 543 2400 Ext 223.
