Roto-o-Rangi School

Swimming Sports 2016

ROTO-O-RANGI SCHOOL SWIMMING SPORTS are happening on THURSDAY 25th FEB. Yes that is this Thursday, just 3 days away now. The day will start at 10am with a look at the Juniors – 5 and 6 yr olds, and non-confident 7 year olds in the shallower indoor pool. We will then head out to the much deeper outdoor pool for all the confident 7 year old swimmers and the 8-10 year olds.
The children can compete in either their Age group, or if they are in Yr 4 upwards can try to compete against the best swimmers in the Cup races. The teachers are sorting out who will be in Age races or Cup races at school. After lunch tends to be the relay races followed by the fun races – novelty races, choose your stroke race, parents v staff v children race. (Look out this year, as Mr Edwards is known as “the man from Atlantis” in the Te A pools).
The PSG have also kindly decided this year that at the swimming sports they will provide: a sausage and a Juicie for free for every child. Children will need more than a sausage and a Juicie so please make sure they have plenty of other things to supplement this free lunch.
