Dear Parents

This year the School Swimming Gala will be held on the MORNING of Friday 18th March at BILLINGHAM FORUM between 10.45am – 12.30pm. Please take note of the following arrangements.

  • All pupils in Years 4-6 will be taken by coach to the Forum at 10.15am.
  • All pupils will be permitted to bring a plastic bottle of water with them to the event as they will not be allowed to use vending machines at the Forum.
  • It would also be useful for all swimmers to bring a t-shirt to wear over their swimwear whilst they are not swimming. Where possible, t-shirts can be in house colours – Castle (royal blue), Whorlon (green) & Ragworth (red).
  • Year 6 pupils should bring £1 for a locker at the Forum (this is returnable).
  • Teams have now been selected and your child should be aware of the race(s) they are competing in. A schedule of races can be located overleaf.
  • All students in Year 7-11 are not competing in the gala and are on normal timetable.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if there are any problems with these arrangements. We will be delighted to see parents at the Gala in time for the first race at 10.45am.

Yours faithfully

Miss Sweeney

Head of Physical Education
