Swimming Program Term 4


​In Term 4 Prep to Year 6 students will participate in swimming as part of their course of study in HPE. As part of the practical learning and assessment for this unit, students are required to demonstrate their understanding and ability to perform water awareness and swimming skills. Swim lessons have been planned to allow for this. Lessons will commence in week 1 of term 4.

Swimming is a compulsory part of the HPE National Curriculum and all students are required to engage and participate. If your child is unable to participate in the swimming program for any reason, please supply a note to the HPE Department for the dates they cannot swim explaining the situation and alternative work related to the curriculum will be provided.

Students must wear appropriate swimwear as below:

- Swimming bag

- Swimwear

- Rashie/Sun shirt with sleeves

- Swimming Cap: available for purchase from the uniform shop

- Towel

- NO jewellery

- Optional: Googles

Swimming permission forms will be handed out towards the end of Term 3. The permission slip and medical information form must be signed and returned to the school by September 20th.
