Inter House Swimming Event

The Inter-House Swimming Carnival will begin at 9.00am and finish at 1.00pm on Wednesday 11 February at HBF Stadium. There will be no classes in the afternoon. There will be no sport training for Year 9s to 12s unless instructed by coaches.

Each boy can only swim in two individual events and one relay with the focus of this event on participation.

Boys are expected to wear Scotch bathers or blue PE shorts. They may also wear a Scotch rash vest if they wish. They will not be allowed to swim if they do not have the correct clothing.

There are no false starts with boys simply being disqualified at the end of the race should they break at the start.

Sunscreen for each house will be provided and please encourage students to wear Scotch hats and to apply sunscreen before they arrive at HBF Stadium.

Entry is from the McGillivray Oval side of HBF Stadium as with previous years and parents are required to pay an entrance fee of approximately $3.50.

Day boys are expected to make their own way to HBF Stadium.

Buses will depart from Australind Street at 8.15am for boys who have training before school.

Boys can go home at the conclusion of the carnival from HBF Stadium. Buses will transport any boys back to school if they cannot get home from the stadium and boys returning to school have the option to undertake private study in the BRC until 3.25pm, where they will be supervised for the afternoon.
