School Swimming Sports
Our annual School Swimming Sports take place in Term 1. Cambridge Middle School's Swimming Sports is going to look a little different in 2021. Due to the Cambridge Town Pool being closed for reconstruction and other local venues unable to accommodate our 700+ students, we are still going to make this opportunity available but for our competitive swimmers only.
2021 Information for competing swimmers:
WHEN: CANCELLED due to covid level 2 restrictions - swimming times will need to be taken from Club times (or a Year 7 WIMS time from 2020) for qualifying for WIMS Swimming. Thank you to those parents who had offered to support us with this event.
WHERE: Cambridge High School (entrance and parking is off Taylor Street) GEAR: Togs, towel, swimming cap, goggles, CMS PE uniform, lunch, snacks, water bottle, CMS hat/cap, any medication needed and comfortable footwear for the walk. Students may arrive at school in their PE gear and leave school at the end of the day in their PE gear. The PE tops need to be the Cambridge Middle School PE tees and shorts need to be all black.
