24 July proved chilly to all brave Matrics. The PHSG pool was home to screaming, colourful and mostly freezing Polar Bear Swimmers. Many girls did complete the two lap swim. Some only jumped into the icy water for a second before immediately getting out as they did not want to risk their bodies going into hypothermic shock. For all those Matrics who took part, PHSG is proud to see your commitment to tradition. This swim will surely have icily awakened all brain cells from a warm hibernation for the upcoming exams. The Polar Bear Swim was a wonderful and shocking valediction of the pool for Grade 12 learners.
