The intensive swimming program for Grades Three to Six (in 2018) will be conducted at the WynActive Aquapulse Pool, Derrimut Road, from Monday 5th February to Thursday 15th, inclusively.
The swim trials for those students who qualify will be held on the Friday 16th February.
The children will travel by bus to the pool and the swimming times are as follows:
|Bus Shuttle times to
AquaPulse Swimming Pool
|Time of Lesson||Grades||Bus Shuttle times back
to St. Peter’s
|8:55am||9:15am – 9:45am||6B 6C||10:05am|

N.B. The children will return to school approximately 30 minutes after the lesson concludes.
During the Swimming Program, the children are expected to wear their Sports Uniform every day. It is a good idea to wear bathers underneath the Sports Uniform and to bring a labelled bag (a supermarket bag is fine!) for towel, goggles, underwear etc. It is important for parents to LABEL EVERY ITEM of their child’s clothing as this may save the frustration of searching the Lost Property Box later on. Children with long hair are advised to have it tied off the face and to wear a swimming cap if possible.
It is each child’s responsibility to come prepared for swimming lessons each day. Any children who forget their swimming bag will not be permitted to swim that day. Please note that, in the past, there has been a great deal of inconvenience in the office caused by children wishing to contact their parents because they have forgotten their swimming gear. Consequently we are unable to continue to do this, so to avoid disappointment, please encourage your child to be organised. If your child is unable to swim on any given day during the program, he/she will still travel to the pool with the class to be supervised by the class teacher.
We will require parental assistance throughout the program to travel on the bus with students and supervise in open public places. All helpers must have been through the St Peter’s Volunteer Interview process and hold a Working With Children card. Please indicate accordingly below your availability.
