PE Swimming
Swimming commenced today, a reminder that all students need to be responsible for their own gear. Please label all swimming items with your child’s name . Also, when changing please remind your child to put their gear in their  bag, ensuring they have all of their belongings stored safely away when changing. Parent helpers for swimming are vital and it’s a great way to share in your child’s activities.  It’s also an opportunity to cool down at the same time. A reminder that if you intend on coming  into school to assist at a swim lesson, no other younger children can be present in the pool area as the students in the pool need your full attention. Please remember to sign in and out at the office. The swimming timetable is available through four means of communication: on the school Facebook page, last week’s newsletter, the school website and through communication from classroom teachers. This outlines  swimming weeks, gear and times.
A reminder of items required for swimming are as follows:
Swimming cap (Silicone or latex) - Compulsory 
Sun shirt - Compulsory
Togs (Boys = Tight fitting Jammers/Euro cut/Traditional; Girls = One piece) Compulsory
No Board Shorts!
Towel
Sunscreen
Goggles/Ear plugs/Ear bands if desired/required
Spare underwear
Bag to put wet gear in

All students in years 4-6 compete across various sports in Semester 1 and 2 against other schools in our cluster area. All students in years 4-6 have indicated their sports choices during the opening fortnight of school. Trials and trainings for these sports will commence during Friday afternoon sport sessions (Week 6 this term). Various providers from all sports will be coming to assist. The season proper of sports commences in Week 1 of Term 2 and will run for 8 weeks on Fridays from 12-3pm. School sport forms should have been received by now. Please note payment covers the whole year of sport, not just Semester 1, regardless of the sport  your child is placed in. If you have not yet received this form, please request one from the office ASAP as payments are due by week 8. Sports for Semester 1 are: Netball, Rugby League, Soccer and Volleyball. Once selected through trials, some sports may require additional personal protective gear. More information will follow during this process. If you are new to our school in Years 4-6, please introduce yourself to me for further clarification if required.
