Jo's Sport Talk


The TPS Swimming Sports is coming up on Tuesday 10th March; our first sporting event for 2020. This year, there are a few changes to the timetable tat we normally run. The Middle School swimming events will run from 9:00am - 10:30am, and the Senior School events will run from 10.30am - 1:00pm. The Junior School will be having a fun event soon.

The day will include non-competitive events for all year groups. For both the Middles and Seniors, this will include the option to take part in fun races in the learners pool. For the Middle School there is also the option to swim widths of the 25 metre pool. The competitive events will be for those that can swim 25 metres or a full length of the pool.

Please note that there will be no sausage sizzle available this year.

We require parents or whanau to help out with timekeeping, giving placings and recording at the event. If you are able to do this, please contact Jo via email and indicate whether you can help with the Middle School, Senior School or both.
