The annual Swimming Gala and Sports Festival will take place on Friday 27 September 2019 between 9.00 am and 1.20 pm.  There will be no lessons that day and so students do not need to bring their bags to the Gala. Students may come to school in PE kit and should register as usual at 8.15 am.  Year 7 – Year 9 students should wear flip-flops as the preferred footwear for the Swimming Gala.

Students should bring sunscreen and every student is expected to wear a hat. All Year 7 students must wear their school caps to the event. They should also bring plenty of water and snacks with them, make sure they hydrate properly and eat breakfast before coming to school.

There will be an opportunity for all students to ‘swim for a dynasty point’ so the correct swimming costume is required. Finalists and relay swimmers are required to wear a Dynasty swim hat and arrive at the marshal on time. The programme of events is available here and on the school website.

We are pleased to invite parents/guardians to attend this event. There will be friendly competition, good swimming and team support for the Dynasties.  If you wish to attend please send an email to miguel.tan@wis.edu.hk.

School buses will collect students at the end of the Swimming Gala from the Hong Kong University site in Sandy Bay at 1.20 pm.

We hope that you enjoy this sporting occasion.
