Swimming Sports (Finals)

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

Girls' Swimming Sports 2018 - Finals, Wednesday 7 February 9.00 am
Boys' Swimming Sports 2018 - Finals, Thursday 8 February 9.45 am (programme to be updated Monday afternoon -  5 February)

All pupils should come to school dressed in their summer PE uniform, ie:

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

In their Sports' Bag, each pupil requires:
   ♦  togs
   ♦  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 (NO dairy food, please)

Please be aware that Tuck Shop is not available to pupils 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.

The nature of the swimming allows the event to run pretty much to time and so, to allow spectators to plan their viewing, the start time for each race is noted in the programme. 

Please be aware that the school day finishes at the usual times, although parents may collect their children from Christ's College after the presentation of the swimming trophies. 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.
