At Helensburgh Public, we endeavour to encourage children to attempt events that challenge their ability but still provide for the weaker swimmers. For this reason, in FREESTYLE races, children gain 1 house point for each length of the pool they swim. That is two house points for swimming 50 metres & one point for entering the 25 metres & wading race. In the lOOm F/s they gain 4 points for completing the event. The Dept of Education now requires that children who are weak or non-swimmers be clearly identified. Children who are identified as such will be required to wear a distinctive wrist band and have event entry restrictions placed upon them. While all children are encouraged to test their swimming ability by entering races there are now entry and swimming restrictions according to a child's swimming ability. These will be;NON-SWIMMER May only enter wade event Must stay in shallow water. May enter wade event or 25 m age race. WEAK SWIMMER Must be near edge in deep water AVERAGE SWIMMER May enter 25 metres or 50m events. May not enter 25m race. CAPABLE SWIMMER Children are not required to dive in at the start of a race and may stop during the race to regain their breath or energy. In all other events timed finals are used, the winner is determined by the fastest time swum. Please note BUTTERFLY is a complicated & demanding event, especially over 50 metres. Therefore only children who are aware of the stroke requirements & have been taught to do the stroke properly should compete in this event. While we encourage children to enter the 200m medley it is again a very strenuous event & should only be entered by children who can comfortably, and competently, swim 50 metres in all 4 strokes. Children not swimming the INDIVIDUAL breaststroke or butterfly events will not be permitted to enter the Medley unless they have spoken to the Carnival Convener beforehand. Please ensure your child understands whether they should enter Disqualification of children is upsetting to both children & teachers. these 2 events.

Convener:- Ms Anne-Maree Connolly
