Grade 3 to 6 Swimming Program

This year students from Grade 3/4/5/6 will be attending the Golden Square Pool for our swimming program.

Students are expected to attend swimming classes as part of our school’s Health and Physical Education program.

The overall aim of the Aquatic Education program is:

  • to develop an awareness of potential dangers in and around the water and teach a range of safety and survival skills.
  • to provide a basis for children to continue aquatic activities either through recreational or competitive swimming or lifesaving.
  • to progressively refine both competitive and survival strokes.


We will be attending the sessions during Term 1 Week 4 on:
  • Monday 14th February
  • Tuesday 15th February
  • Wednesday 16th February 
  • Thursday 17th February
  • Friday 18th February 
Each session will be 45 minutes in duration.
