Reminders about kit:

Swim wear:     

  • Girls – a one piece costume. Bikinis/tankinis can ride up.
  • Boys - shorts above the knee so as not to restrict movement/drag them down.

Jewellery:  All jewellery to be removed and left at home or school. Earrings can stick into the back of the ear; fall out in the water; etc.

Hair: All long hair (both boys and girls) must be tied back to stop hair restricting vision. The recommendation is to wear a swimming cap.

Goggles: Goggles are the pupils’ responsibility. They need to fit correctly and know how to put them on. They will be asked to take them off for some activities at times.
