The winter training programme starts on 17 April at the Midlands swimming pool. If your child does not have access to Midlands, you need to register your child and obtain a swimming card (the cost of the card amounts to R30-00), to ensure that your child has free access to the Midlands swimming pool.

The winter training programme is only for swimmers who swam in the A, B and C teams during Term 1. 

The Grade 1 swimmers who received a letter are included in the winter training programme. It is important for the swimmers to practice throughout winter to maintain and improve their fitness levels.

As a Midstream community we are all joining hands to host our first Street Store in the Olievenhoutbosch area on 18 May 2019.

The Street Store is a worldwide initiative where a pop-up clothing store is created in an under-privileged area. The people from that community choose an item of clothing, to their liking, for free. At the same time, they experience the love of God first hand.

We invite all children and parents from Midstream to be part of this amazing initiative.

How can you get involved?
• Donate any clothing or shoes, in a good and clean condition, that you do not wear any more. (Adult or  
  children’s clothing, especially winter clothing is welcome). Drop it off at your school or at one of the
  churches in Midstream.
• Volunteer as a family on the day of the Street Store (18 May). Follow the link to see the different areas that 
  are available.
• Help sort out the clothing on the Monday before the event (13 May).

The last day for donations is 10 May.
