Swimming lessons PP - Year 4

Dear Parent/Guardian

I am pleased to provide you with the following details regarding our swimming and water safety lessons at Bold Park Aquatic Centre over 2 weeks - from Monday 5th November to Friday 16th November (10 day series). While the lessons are provided free of charge to students, there is a cost for entry to the pool and bus hire for each session.

All students are strongly encouraged to take part and to learn to swim. This is vital in our Australian culture and allows students to participate in a wide range of activities and sports as they grow older

The cost of Interm Swimming is $53.00 – for bus hire and pool entry over the 10 days.

Travel will be by Buswest bus hire. Between 75-80 students will attend each session. Students will be supervised on the bus by classroom teachers and taught at the beach by Education Department trained swimming instructors. The school staff will still maintain a high level of supervision and provide support to swimming staff during lesson times. A detailed timetable outlining travel and session times will be published early in Term 4.

Students will undertake activities at the pool to develop the skills and abilities required to move through the stages of the Education Department Water and Swimming Safety continuum. If you need to make contact during the day please phone the school on 9416 9800.

It is important that your child’s Health Care Summary is up to date.  These can be updated at the school office.  If the proposed excursion poses any additional health risks to those identified in the Student Health Care Summary, e.g. if your child suffers from anaphylaxis there may be risks associated with the provision of meals and storage of an adrenaline auto injector at the appropriate temperature. Please outline additional health risks on the permission slips attached.

Kind Regards
