Sponsored swimathon G3-G6 Monday 27 September
The Physical Education Department is organising a sponsored swimathon in aid of The Claires Court Tour Fund. This is an optional swimathon and girls do not have to take part if they do not wish to.

As part of the Swimathon, girls from Year 3 to Year 6 will have the opportunity to take part in a competition. There will be an individual prize for the girl who swims the most lengths (of a 20m pool) in 35 minutes. 

The swimathon is due to take place during the timetabled swimming lesson in the week beginning Monday 27 September. Any girl not wishing to take part will participate in a normal swimming lesson. All money raised should be paid via the Parent Pay Portal by Friday 15 October at the latest. Please see attached sponsor form here.
