DCIS Swimming Galas 2017

08 June 2017

Dates and times for the annual event where families can cheer on their children in the pool, where students encourage others and have fun together

  • DCIS Swimming Gala 2016

Dear DCIS Parents and Guardians,

The annual DCIS Swimming Gala for Reception to Year 11 is fast approaching. It begins on the 19th of June and culminates on the 27th of June with the Secondary School water polo tournaments. 

The Swimming Galas are an opportunity for you to watch, encourage and cheer on your child in the pool. All pupils participate with the aim to encourage others and have fun, as well as to try their best.

See table below for full breakdown of days, times and year groups.

Nursery classes through to Year 2 swim in their classes.

The Year 3 and 4 galas are split into groups (A, B and C). Most pupils will swim for their class at the allotted time in either the `A` or `B` group. Other pupils have been selected to swim in the `C` group. For example John will swim for 3KN in the Year 3A gala on Wednesday 21st June at 10.45am. Jane, who is also in 3KN, has been selected to swim in the Year 3C gala on Thursday 22nd June at 1.30pm. Both pupils will compete for their class against the other Year 3 classes.
Secondary pupils have been learning to play the ever popular game of water polo for the past term. All Year 7 -11 pupils have been assigned to a team and will be playing matches against each other.   

  • Times published are approximate. No session will start earlier than published. We will aim to start at the allocated time. Please appreciate that there are factors out of our control that may delay a start time (weather especially).
  • Please arrive and enter the pool via Gate 2 at least 10 minutes before the published start time.
  • No hot drinks or food must be brought into the pool area.
  • All photography will be taken by DCIS so we ask that parents DO NOT TAKE ANY PHOTOGRAPHS. This is in accordance with Child Protection Regulations for Nord Anglia. DCIS will then upload photographs for you to view, save & print as required.
  • Once your children's classes have completed their swimming events please leave the pool area promptly via Gate 3 to allow the next group of parents in.
  • This year the PE Department will be assisted at the pool by several DCIS Fins Swim Team Secondary students. This will allow all parents to watch and enjoy what is happening in the pool.
  • In the event of poor weather (eg rain/thunder) we will endeavour to inform you by if the gala has to be postponed. We aim to organise a new time and date for the following week and will inform you asap.

As always, if you have any questions, please contact us here at the PE Department.

Kind Regards,

DCIS PE Department
