1st Lincoln School Aquathon & AUSTSWIM course

We are excited about hosting the 1st Lincoln School Aquathon this Sunday, March 13th from 10.00 am to 12.00 noon. Registration will take place upon arrival and all participants can get their gear together in the transition area. Swimmers and runners will need to bring their swimsuit, a towel, goggles, running shoes, and running apparel. Participants are welcome to take as much time as they need to complete a maximum of 40 lengths in the pool and 10 laps of the school running circuit that has been mapped out for this event. Snacks, drinks and medical support will be available on-site. If you have any questions about the event, please don't hesitate to get in touch: ldavis@lsnepal.com

Next month - April 21, 22, 23 - Lincoln School will be hosting the SAISA Boys' Basketball tournament. We are looking forward to putting on this event in our community, but do need your help to make it happen! Here is a letter and sign-up link encouraging you to host incoming participants. Please do help us out with this. 

Our sports teams are training hard and engaging in local opportunities to prepare for these culminating SAISA events. Our girls' football team will be playing a match at the ANFA ground in Satdobato this Saturday at 4.00pm. Additionally, our boys' basketball team has a series of fixtures lined up before they play in a local tournament on April 9th:

- On Saturday, March 12th, we play at 10.00 am vs KISC@LS

- On Thursday, March 17th, we play at 4.00 pm vs ULLENS@LS

- On Saturday, March 19th, we play at 9.00 am vs ULLENS@LS

Finally, on March 20-24, Lincoln School PE and coaching staff, as well as a few students, will be participating in an AUSTSWIM course. All candidates will receive Australia's National Certification for the Teaching of Swimming and Water Safety. Not only will this provide our students and staff with valuable swimming and water safety knowledge and skills, but it will also mean that our entire department will have the same training to impart onto all our students from the Learn-to-Swim Program all the way through to our Competitive Swimming program. 

I hope to see you at the Aquathon on Sunday!
