New house shirts:
After a long stretch the old house shirts have finally been retired. We now have brand new house shirts with new logos, new quick dry sports material and a whole new design.
We researched the house characters and their amazing history and discovered that they are the Four Guardians of the Four Compass Directions & Celestial Emblems of the Chinese Emperor. They represent:
Black Tortoise (Black Warrior) = North, Winter, Black, Water
White Tiger (Kirin) = West, Fall, White, Metal
Red Bird (Phoenix) = South, Summer, Red, Fire
Blue Dragon = East, Spring, Blue/Green, Wood
The shirts are for sale in the clothing store now.
The old house shirts may still be worn for PE and house activities.
Our registrations for ACAMIS Swimming have closed. We have a good number of returning swimmers and some new ones for this year. Mr. Ben and Ms. Allerie will be coaching the team and will chaperone the trip to Suzhou from the 23rd – 25th of March.
CISA swimmers will be able to sign up after season two of CISA finishes. Stay tuned.
