As you know 1st-6th class will be attending swimming lessons on Thursday 9th of November -Thursday 14th of December.
Swimming is part of the PE curriculum and all children are given the chance to participate in swimming. Due to the high price of buses/lessons and the number of school personnel, it is necessary that all pupils participate. Unfortunately, we do not have enough staff to facilitate some children staying at school. Should your child not be able to participate on any given day, they can accompany us to the pool and sit at the side.
The children will need the following in a bag:
Goggles (if possible)
Hair towel (if applicable)
Some tips for swimming:
Wear togs under uniform in the morning
Plait longer hair
Hair towels can be worn in the bus back to school
Bring a plastic bag for wet gear
The pool staff have requested that children only rinse after swimming and do not shampoo their hair.
Just a reminder that children cannot be dropped to school until 8.50am. The children are not insured to be on the school property before this time and on a more practical level, the teachers use this time to prepare for the day and we would really appreciate if you could respect this.
Parents, please find information and support that you may need to ensure your child makes the most of their time online and stays safe when interacting with others online. Also, it shows you how to set up parental control over your children's devices.
