Three Schools to Swim for Literacy on 25 March

We are delighted that three Wheatbelt schools will participate in the Swim at Bruce Rock Aquatic Centre on 25 March 2017. Quairading and Narembeen District High Schools have accepted our invitation to participate in the inaugural Wheatbelt Swim for Literacy (“Wheatbelt Swim”) to be held at the Bruce Rock Aquatic Centre on Saturday 25 March 2017.

The Wheatbelt Swim and our third annual Swim for Bruce Rock Kids will be held as one event (“Swim”), with registration starting at 4pm.

The Swim

The Swim is a fundraising and community event for participating Wheatbelt schools. E-WA and our charity, The Rotary Foundation, will provide grants to Narembeen and Quairading. E-WA will continue to support Bruce Rock DHS by way of the successful Reading Rabbits and Reading for Life reading incentive programs, funds for which are raised via the annual Swim event.

The Swim is a non-competitive event held to encourage participation by students and the community. The primary fundraising for the event is by way of sponsorship of swimmers.

Registration for the Swim on 25 March will commence at 4pm, with swimming commencing at 4.30pm and the Swim will conclude by 7.30pm. Entry will be FREE.
