Senior School Inter-House Swimming Carnival 2020

The Senior School (Years 9 to 12) Inter-House Swimming Carnival will begin at 9.00am and finish at 1.00pm on Wednesday 5 February. Please find attached the Swimming Carnival Programme of Events.

There will be no classes in the afternoon. There will be no sport training for Years 9 - 12 in the afternoon unless instructed by coaches. Training in the morning is as normal.

Each individual boy can only swim in two individual events, one freestyle relay and one novelty relay, with the focus of this event on participation.

Boys are expected to wear Scotch bathers or blue PE shorts. They may also wear a Scotch rash vest if they wish. They will not be allowed to swim if they do have the correct clothing.

There are no false starts with boys simply being disqualified at the end of the race should they break at the start.

Sunscreen for each House will be provided. Please encourage students to wear Scotch hats and to apply sunscreen before they arrive at HBF Stadium. There is limited shade for spectators so parents and friends attending the carnival should bring a hat, apply sunscreen and stay hydrated. Parents are not permitted onto the pool deck.

Entry is from the McGillivray Oval side of HBF Stadium as with previous years and parents are required to pay an entrance fee of approximately $3.60.

Day boys are expected to make their own way to HBF Stadium.

Buses will depart from the Middle School bus bay on Shenton Road at 8.15am for boys who have training before school and for all boarders.

Boys can go home at the conclusion of the carnival from HBF Stadium. Buses will transport any boys back to school who are not able to get home from the stadium. Boys returning to school have the option to undertake private study in the Bunning Resource Centre (Senior School Library) until 3.25pm, where they will be supervised for the afternoon.

Please direct any queries to your son’s House Head. If boys are  injured  they should communicate this to their House Head as well.
