Once a year our student participate in a week of swimming lessons as part of our Health and PE Curriculum.
The aim of such program is to:
- develop students’ confidence in and around aquatic environments
- develop students’ skills, knowledge and understandings related to water safety
- teach students how to evaluate and make sound decisions about their safety, and the safety of others, in and around aquatic environments
- encourage students to work cooperatively and effectively with others
Students participate in a range of water activities focused around safe entry and exits to aquatic environments, underwater skills, floating and treading water, movement skills through water and rescue and survival skills.
