Term 4 2020 Swimming

Years 2 - 6 

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Tewantin State School employs private swimming coaches to complement our school swimming program for the senior school. The program has been extremely successful in previous years and is well supported by parents. During Term 4, children in Years 2 - 6 will have 8 x 30 minute lessons in our school pool.

Lessons will commence in Week 2 on Monday 12th October 2020.

Our school is providing qualified teaching staff at a cost of $48.00 for the 8 lessons.  All teaching will take place in our own school pool by qualified instructors while our teachers will supervise from the poolside.  

For students to commence lessons from Monday the 12th of October, the Consent Form attached and payment must be completed and returned to the classroom teacher by Friday 9th October.  It is essential the school receives payment prior to the cut off date and various payment methods are available including: BPoint, eftpos and cash.
 
Our school pool is heated and there are some essential items your child will need for swimming lessons and these include:-
  • togs, towel and goggles (optional)
  • sun shirt/rash shirt is also required as a means of protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays (no t-shirts please).

It is requested that all personal belongings be clearly labelled and brought to and from the pool in a “swimming” bag of some sort.

Generally speaking, swimming will take place unless severe weather conditions prevail (such as torrential rain, lightning, and thunder storms) in which case alternative arrangements will be made.  Also, the weather conditions can change quite quickly, so if it is raining before school on your child’s swimming day, please don’t assume swimming will be cancelled.  

The timetable is as follows:

Each class will swim for a total of eight lessons, starting on Monday 12/10/20 and continuing through until the end of week 9. Week 10 will be used to catch up any lessons that may be missed due to weather.


Term 4 2020 Swimming

Prep  - Year 1

Tewantin State School employs private swimming coaches to complement our school swimming program for the junior school. The program has been extremely successful in previous years and is well supported by parents. During Term 4, children in Prep/Year 1 will have 8 x 30 minute lessons in our school pool.  Lessons are more expensive for the Prep and Year One classes as they require more coaches to accommodate the children’s limited swimming ability and supervision ratios.

Lessons will commence in Week 2 on Monday 12th October 2020.

Our school is providing qualified teaching staff at a cost of $64.00 for the 8 lessons.  All teaching will take place in our own school pool by qualified instructors while our teachers will supervise from the poolside.
