Swimming Sports (Finals)

School Swimming Sports are held on two separate days - one each for the Boys' and Girls' Schools - in the third week of Term I in the Christ's College pool.  

Girls' Swimming Sports Finals 2019 Tuesday, 12 February 9.30 am
Boys' Swimming Sports Finals 2019 - Thursday 14 February 9.30 am

Note: As was done with our Athletic records, Swimming records are being re-aligned to the Year group of the student who won them. These records will be made available prior to Finals days. 


All students should come to school with their togs on underneath their summer PE uniform:

   ♦  House shirt
   ♦  PE shorts
   ♦  white socks
   ♦  full tracksuit
    
♦  sports shoes

In their Sports' Bag, each student requires:
   ♦  TWO towels
   ♦  goggles (optional)
   ♦   swimming cap (optional)
   ♦  drink bottle - water only, please
    
♦  sufficient food for a busy day of activity: morning tea snack, lunch, afternoon snack

Please be aware that online lunch orders are not available to students who are swimming on  Swimming Sports' Day.

Spectators are welcome throughout the day but please do not enter through the main gates of Christ's College. To access the pool, enter the Botanic Gardens via the Museum Gate and follow the path alongside the museum and past the Robert McDougal Gallery building and public toilets on the right. Entry to the College grounds is through the small roofed gate in the brick wall on the right. Proceed around the path to the pool in the far, opposite corner. Please do not cross the grass field.

Please be aware that the school day finishes at the usual times. Girls' swimming sports are scheduled to finish at lunch time and girls will return to school after the programme is complete. Boy's parents may collect their children from Christ's College, or will return to school with their class teacher in time for a 3:30pm finish. If you wish to take your child directly from the Christ's College pool, please advise your child's class teacher at the time. Please note, however, that the buildings will be locked during the Swimming Sports' and it may not be possible to access pupils' belongings until the rest of the Prep School returns from College at the end of the day.
