Our Daily Swimming Program will begin this week for students in Years 3-6. It is a 9 day program that runs everyday. We rely on teachers and volunteer parents to conduct the sessions. We have grouped children according to similar abilities and give them a daily opportunity to practise and improve their skills and improve water confidence. We follow the ‘Royal Life Saving’ program. While many of the adults are ‘Austswim’ trained, some are not. Please remember, it is not squad training and there are not any professional swimming coaches involved. Life Guards will be at the pool at all times during the sessions.

 

Swimming sessions will take place over the following dates:

Week 1 – Monday 5th Feb, Tues 6th Feb, Wed 7th Feb, Thurs 8th Feb, Fri 9th Feb,

Week 2 – Mon 12th Feb, Tues 13th Feb, Wed 14th, Thurs 15th Feb.

 

Students will walk down to the pool being supervised by their teachers.

 

Before School Swimming

On Friday 16th February, Years 3-6 students will participate in our House Swimming Carnival. Many of them will then be selected to represent our school at the District Swimming Carnival. To help the students train for those carnivals, our before school swimming programalso began this morning for children from Years 3-6. This will continue until Thursday 15th February (8.00 am - 8.30 am at the Area Indoor Pool). It is not a swimming training session but a lap swimming opportunity session.

 

It should only involve students from Years 3-6 who are capable of swimming at least 1 complete lap at a time. We encourage those students to come along and swim some laps. There will be a teacher from Puckapunyal Primary School at the Pool each morning to supervise.. Please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Warne at school if you have any queries about any of our Swimming Programs.
