Frequently Asked Questions on our Annual Swim Carnival.

The Swim Carnival is an annual private event where students gather for a day of swimming fun. Families traditionally contribute food and prizes, creating an enjoyable atmosphere aimed at inspiring children to improve their swimming skills. You will be pleasantly surprised how motivated they are after this simple yet meaningful event.

Key Highlight: Participants have the opportunity to swim (with or without floatation devices) or walk along the poolside at their own pace to earn prizes. For example, completing 3 laps entitles them to earn 3 rubber band. This allows them to visit the prize booth to exchange for rewards that cost 3 rubber bands or less.

While medals are awarded for top 3, participation in competitive events is optional. Those interested can join at most 2 categories:
