There will be a new format to the MYP Swim Gala this year. On Wed 11 Feb (Day 3) the Gr6&7 Gala will be during Block 3, Gr8&9 during Block 4 and Gr10 – 12 during Block 5. This means that outside of these blocks, classes will run as normal (except for Gr11 who are having an EE day). If you teach any of the above grades during the blocks they are scheduled to have their gala, then you will be at the pool rather than teach your class. More information will be given closer to the date.
