    Saint Ignatius House Swimming Carnival 2020

    There is currently great excitement around the College as the Annual House Swimming Carnival draws closer. This is the first of three whole school sporting events this year. These events provide students with an opportunity to compete against their peers and they assist coaching staff to identify potential members for different sporting teams. 

    Venue Kardinia Aquatic Centre, 25 Park Crescent South Geelong, Vic., 3220

    Attendance: There is an expectation that all students will attend the Swimming Carnival. There are many events that cater for all levels of swimmers and if you are not able to get into the pool you will be expected to cheer on your housemates. If students do not attend they are requested to produce a note via their student planner by Friday 28th February.

    Parental/Guardian Permission: Please approve the parent/guardian consent form via your Caremonkey account when it comes available in emails.

    Parental/Guardian Attendance:  Parents/Guardians and other family members are invited to attend the Carnival.  A section of the pool area will be reserved for non-students.

    Student Travel Arrangements:  After the morning Homeroom period, students will board buses to take them to Kardinia Park Pool.

    All students will return to school by bus in time for the afternoon Homeroom period before being dismissed from school.

    Variations to Student Travel Arrangements: It is expected that all students will travel to and from school as normal on the day of the Carnival.  

    Attire: We ask that students enter into the spirit of the day and dress-up in the colour of their House, to add to the atmosphere. However, students are reminded they are expected to be suitably dressed. No bikinis or low cut board shorts are permitted.  Streamers, dyes, body painting, zinc and balloons will not be permitted within the facility.

    Students are to arrive to school in their PE uniform. Students who wish to get changed into their ‘dress up’ outfit are to do so at school. Students may wish to have their swimming outfit underneath their PE uniform or get changed for swimming events at the Kardinia Pool on arrival.

    Please ensure your daughter/son attends in a “Sunsmart” way – sport uniform with hat and sunscreen applied.

    Photography: As part of the terms and conditions associated with the College hiring the Kardinia Aquatic Centre, we remind both students and parents that any form of “Photography, Video or DVD recording” within the centre is prohibited. Mr David Alexander and Mrs Claire Hewitt will be taking official photos on behalf of the College during the Carnival.

    Canteen: The canteen will be accessible for students this year at certain times throughout the day. No glass can be brought into the Centre. No food is to be ordered / delivered from ‘outside’ eg pizzas, fish and chips.

    We trust that all students will have an enjoyable day and make the most of the activities offered. You will find the Event Program attached to this note so that parent/guardians may be able to know when to attend to see particular students in action.
