Dear Parents and Caregivers
Our annual swimming carnival will be held on Wednesday 7 February, 2018 from 8.30am to 2.35pm at Albion Park Pool.

Students from Years 7-12 are eligible to compete but competitors must be capable swimmers. Students must swim in the age that they are turning this year. 

The carnival will involve the following swimming activities:
• 100 metres Freestyle
• 50 metres Freestyle for 12 – 17 + year olds
• 50 metres Breaststroke for 12 – 17 + year olds
• 50 metres Butterfly for 12 – 17 + year olds
• 50 metres Backstroke for 12 – 17 + year olds
• 200 metre Individual Medley – this event is nomination only and is held at 8am on the day. 


Students must nominate at the PE staffroom before Wednesday.

A child's age group is determined by the age they turn this year (2018)

Students need to attend school for a normal 8.25am roll call before they will be walked to the pool by staff.

 The cost for pool entry is $2, which needs to be paid as we enter the pool.

All students need to wear either their Albion Park High School sports uniform or their house colours. Sunscreen, hats, water etc., needs to be brought as well as appropriate swimwear. 

The canteen at the pool will be open for the purchase of food.

Students are encouraged to participate in our competitive swimming events but this is not compulsory.

There are a number of novelty events that are also held on the day that students may also involve themselves in.

Parents are encouraged to attend this day and support their child(ren) and our school.

Yours sincerely,
Amy Caldwell and Michael Todd
Carnival Organisers
