PLC Armidale's annual Whole School Swimming Carnival will be held Thursday 11 February, 2021. 

It will be held at the Monckton Aquatic Centre, Armidale from 8:30am – 3:00pm.  The first race will be the 200m Individual Medley to commence promptly at 8:30am.  

If you are competing in this event, you will need to be at the pool before 8:15am and be ready to compete at 8:30am.

All girls should wear PLC Armidale swimmers underneath their Guild uniform. Girls will need to bring their PE bag containing a towel, guild swimming cap, hat, sunscreen and plenty of drinks/water as the canteen is not available. Please also ensure sunscreen has been applied before your daughter comes to school.  A PLC Armidale jersey or jacket is essential for use between races and PLC Armidale track pants may be worn if the day is cold. T-shirts in Guild colours and swimming caps are available from the Uniform Shop.
