I am delighted to announce that in light of the recent increase of house competitions, Heywood Prep Sports Department will be delivering an Inter House Swimming event on Thursday 19th April, at Ashwicke Hall School, Marshfield, SN14 8AG. (approx. 12 mins from Heywood Prep)
Ashwicke Hall School have a lovely indoor 25m swimming pool, which we have booked from 4.30pm-5.45pm. Parents are most welcome to support.
Please see below for full timetable of races.
If you would like your son/daughter to take part in the inter house swimming competition, please complete the Google Doc form and indicate which races they would like to do. Children will be allowed to participate in a maximum of 3 individual races plus the relays and Canon race. The final selections will lay with the House Leaders - Mr Siman (Danes), Miss Evans (Romans) and Miss Cammiade (Saxons).
Race 32 will be the Canon Race in which 1 boy and 1 girl from years 3 to 6 will be chosen by the House Leaders to take part in the 25m Freestyle race.
For those children who are regular club swimmers, please encourage them to take up the Individual Medley, 50m Freestyle and/or Butterfly races for their House.
There will be limited school transport available (max 7 spaces) for children to get to Ashwicke Hall, so I ask that parents pick up at 3.30pm and make their own way to the venue. At the entrance to Ashwicke Hall, all parents are required to present photographic ID to enter the site for safeguarding reasons. Please then make your way to the Sports Centre and the Swimming Pool where you will find Heywood staff. At the end of the event, all children must be collected and signed out by a member of staff.
If you have any questions about the Inter House Swimming Event please do not hesitate to contact me at Chris.Knight@heywoodprep.com
