This weekend we have 5 swimmers who are competing in the NZ Junior Swimming Festival - Makos Zone (South Island) in Timaru. They are swimming Friday, Saturday and Sunday and are competing against the best of the South Island swimmers from U10 to 12 years which you had to qualify for. Simultaneously there are 3 zones in the North Island racing at the same time and the swimmers times will be measured against their North Island counterparts. Good luck to Elenoa Asi, Molly Whittaker, Corbin Fraser, Taine Dyson and Morgan Baillie who are swimming between 6 and 13 races each with some swimming in relays.
Please check your child's clothing to see if they have picked up anyone else's jackets, pe gear or jerseys as the Bartley family are missing these items. Please hand them into the office if you have any of them.
