Swimming Questions

Each year we are asked questions about participation in the swimming programme. We believe that swimming is an important life skill and that all students should feel comfortable in and around the water. Classes are held once a week for all grades  and all students are expected to participate.  I have attached a copy of the Swimming Policy and a document for you to read that may answer your questions. Please take a look and if you have any additional questions please drop me a line via email at or pop by the office.

I have also been asked “what do the students do if they do not swim?”. Students stay in the classroom with the alternate class in their grade. They participate in the lesson going on or a given valuable work to do that relates to classroom units, goals and expectations. Students do not sit by the pool and wait for their friends. Students should however, be participating unless they have a note from the doctor to excuse them from class.

Many thanks June
