The first event will start at 8:30 a.m. All students are expected to be there on that day to support their House. In case of absence, a doctor’s certificate must be submitted. Parents’ letters that do not provide good reasons for absence will be brought to the attention of the Discipline Masters. All students, except swimmers and scouts, must be in school uniform. Kwun Tong Swimming Pool is an indoor pool, but even with air-conditioning, it can be warm and very humid. It is recommended that boys put on school badges rather than school ties. Students are also reminded that mobile phones should be switched OFF in the swimming pool area, and that no other electronic devices are allowed.

The spectator stands will be divided into 8 sections for the 8 Houses. A seating plan is posted on the Swimming Team and House Notice Boards, located near SR11A and outside of the George She Chapel respectively. Students will sit with their House Masters and Mistresses. Students should pack light and look after their own belongings. They should also bring along some drinking water and keep the stands clean and tidy.

Teachers, time-keepers, scouts, and swimmers should bring along their own FLIP-FLOPS.

House Cheering Teams should note that no musical instruments are allowed at the Pool.

All students, including swimmers, officials, scout members and time-keepers, are reminded to bring their student ID cards for roll-call at the entrance of the swimming pool on that day at 8:05 a.m.

The prize presentation will be at 12:30 p.m.
