Swimming Term 1

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Term 1 Swimming Lessons

Holy Rosary swimming lessons will begin in early Term 1 in the lead up to the Holy Rosary Swimming Carnival on Friday 4th March. Students in Years 2 – 6 will take part in swimming lessons during their Physical Education classes. These lessons will be delivered by qualified swim instructors over 5 consecutive days. Each student will be individually graded and will receive a certificate at the completion of the lessons. There will be a clear focus on improving each child’s understanding of water safety, while also preparing them for the upcoming swimming carnival.

Students will be transported in the school bus to and from the pool and they will be accompanied by Mr Kayde and classroom ATA’s.

The cost of the lessons will be $25 per child which will cover:

  • Entry to all swimming lessons.
  • Each child to be graded and awarded a certified swimming certificate.
  • Additional Shire Lifeguard support and Duty of Care.
  • Instruction by qualified swimming teachers.
