Swimming and water safety

 Swimming instruction will continue for the Summer term ending Thursday 10 July.
The aim is to teach the children to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres (please note the Outer West big pool length is 33 metres), using a variety of strokes effectively (for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke) and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
We leave school at about 2pm then travel by minibus to the Outer West Pool.  The half hour lesson is delivered by qualified coaches.  We will return to school at approximately 3.20pm.
Please ensure your child has kit on Thursdays - towel and bathers; one-piece swimming costume for girls, swimming trunks/ shorts not below knee for boys.
