Birregurra Primary school values the importance of learning to swim and our role in supporting our students to be safe in and out of the water. The swimming program this year will include students from Prep through to Grade 6.

The swimming program is a key component of the Health & Physical Education Victorian Curriculum and it is therefore expected that all students will participate.

This year our Prep to Grade 2 students will be attending Heather’s Swim School, and our Grade 3-6 students will be attending Bluewater. The program will run over 8 weeks commencing in Week One of Term 3.  Students will        participate in lessons on a Friday afternoon between 1:30-2:30pm.

Students will be travelling by bus to and from the pools, with all staff attending. No students will remain at school.

The cost of the program is $68 per student which covers pool entry and transport for the 8 sessions. Families are not expected to pay for instructors. Please note the cost of travel has been subsidised by the generosity of the  Bendigo Community Bank. We greatly appreciate their support of our school and this important program.

Swimming information and permission forms will be sent home with students today. We would greatly appreciate the return of all permission forms by this Friday 25th June prior to the school holidays.
