You are welcome to meet at the pool if easier than coming to school but please let your Tutor teacher know. The buses will bring the Juniors back to school following the session at approx. 11.30am or girls can make their own way home straight from the pool (as long as their Tutor teacher knows).
- Seniors can either leave from school on the bus at 11.15am or meet at the pool at 11.30am. Their session begins SHARPLY at 12pm. Once again, buses will be returning to school following their session end at 1.30pm or girls can go directly home.
- Once at the pool, congregate outside the main doors. You will be let into the pool area via a side door. Once inside, move to your designated Clan area.
- Junior session will begin with Clan Chant and Boarder/Day-girl Umbrella Race. Senior session will begin with the Haka and the Boarder/Day-girl Raft Race.
- IMPORTANT: Competitive swimmers need to ensure they are swimming with their right age group. This might mean you need to attend a different session than your peers if you are a competitive swimmer.
- TAKE YOUR OWN FOOD AND DRINK FOR THE MORNING.
- No face paint, feathers, tinsel or balloons or water bombs. Keep well away from the edge. No pushing in. Move around the pool in a clockwise direction.
- Clean up your clan area at the end.
- NOTE – limited changing facilities mean you will need to put your clothes on over your togs to return to school or home.
