This year, exclusively for P1, P2, P3 and P4 children we will be holding our annual swimathon event to help us achieve our target of raising  £8,500 to support school’s technology, Health and Wellbeing projects (which includes sports tuition e.g. swimming and cycling).  ALL children at Sciennes will benefit from the funds raised.

The Swimathon has been great fun in the past and we would like as many children as possible to take part again this year.  Children will have the opportunity to swim as many lengths/ breadths of the school pool as they can in a specified time.  Non-swimmers are encouraged to take part, using swimming aids in the shallow end of the pool, never going out of their depth.  The Swimathon is well staffed, with a qualified life guard on duty at all times.

When does my child swim?

The timetable is as follows:

How to raise sponsorship money?

To make it easier for funds to raise money we have set up a BTmydonate page which in turn enables you to set up your own online sponsorship page.  You can access this by going to the following web address:

  • Raise sponsorship (If you have any trouble with the link just google ‘mydonate Sciennes’)
  • Click on ‘start fundraising’ to set up your child’s own online giving page. You can then send a link to relatives and friends who may want to sponsor your child.
  • If required, Click here to access a Swimathon Sponsorship Form for pupils wishing to use them
