By now, you will have received the permission link and time, date and location details for the upcoming school swimming carnival via Compass. The carnival is for Years 2-6.
Here’s everything else you need to know about the day.
Students must wear their sports uniform including shoes and socks and their colour house t-shirt. They are to wear swimmers under their uniform. This must be a one piece swimming costume for girls and no boardshorts for boys.
WHAT TO BRING:
HOW DO THEY GET THERE AND BACK?
All students will travel to the venue by bus. The bus will leave St Joseph’s at 11.15am and return to school by 4.00pm at the latest. We recommend arriving at school for pickup at 3.30pm, understanding that the bus should arrive between 3.30pm-4pm. Please note the return time will not be in time for School buses.
CAN I COLLECT MY CHILD MYSELF?
You may choose to take your child home from the swim centre at the completion of the carnival. If you would prefer to do this, the carnival will conclude at 2.45pm and you will need to ensure your child’s teacher knows they have been collected, prior to taking them home.
CAN I DROP MY CHILD OFF MYSELF?
As the carnival doesn’t start until after 9am, please arrive at school as normal.
WHICH RACE IS MY CHILD IN?
The children will compete in the age group they are turning in 2021. For example if they turn 8 in 2021, they will compete in the 8yrs race.
NORTHERN BEACHES CARNIVAL:
The Northern Beaches Catholic schools cluster carnival will be held on Tuesday March 2nd at Warringah Aquatic Centre. The Northern Beaches Carnival is made up of several schools around the area. Students who record a time that makes them eligible for the Northern Beaches Carnival will proceed further. Please note: children cannot proceed to the Northern Beaches Carnival in an event unless they swim in the 50m race for that event. They must be in the 8 years event to compete in that carnival (those in 7’s will not be eligible.)
WHAT IF MY CHILD WANTS TO SIGN UP OR CHANGE RACES ON THE CARNIVAL DAY ITSELF?
Administration and organisation requirements means there will be no race entry changes allowed on the day of the carnival.
CAN I COME AND WATCH?
Please also note that due to COVID restrictions, there will unfortunately be NO spectators. Photos will be taken on the day of the event.
