KZN School Swim Champs 2018
School swim Champs KwaZulu Natal (KZN) – January and February 2018 – a first for Monica
January through to March is usually a quiet time on the swimming front. We only swim a couple of Age group galas.
These months are, however, very busy months for school-going learners. The schools start in January with inter-house galas. They choose teams to represent the respective schools in Districts based on the outcome of their inter-hours galas.
The selected teams swim respective Districts galas – each district selects a team to compete at the KwaZulu Natal (KZN) Provincial schools championships.
KZN Schools selects a team to represent the Province at the annual National Schools Championship.
Did you ever swim with an Olympian?

Dad and I drove down for the December holidays after a very tiring KZN Premier champs. Our trip takes us from Durban on the East Coast, through the Free State to the Western Cape with a one-night stopover at Colesburg (half way). Mom is working in Cape Town on contract and we will spend Christmas with Granny in a small place called Dwarskersbos, 12 km from Velddrif.
The first day is an eight-hour drive and we arrive safely in Colesburg. The next day will be a nine-hour drive to Dwarskersbos. It is very sad to see how dry it is everywhere.
