Swimming Update

Remember to pack: bathing suit, swim cap, towel, goggles, a bag for wet things.

We will be swimming beginning tomorrow, Monday, May 28 for four days. Parents are able to watch on Thursday, May 31 for a twenty minute time window between 10:00 and 10:45 (a more specific time will be available later this week).

Parking will cost 10rmb per hour and parents can walk over to the pool from there. The pool compound has very little parking available. All parents should park in the business center as it might be hard to translate with the guards to pass through. The pool is a straight walk to the very back of the compound.
