Swimming Program

In Term 3 of our school year all students take part in an intensive swimming program taught at Collingwood Leisure Centre.

Each Friday throughout the whole Term 3 our students will have 45-minute swimming lessons. The class sizes are small to provide a great learning environment for all our students.

On the first day of the intensive swimming program each student's swimming skills will be assessed before being placed in the appropriate group. The assessment is done by the school intensive swim program coordinator against the Royal Life Saving Society Australia's Swim and Survive Program criteria.

The following swimming lessons will be spent learning and practicing swimming skills within each group. Our students will partake in water safety exercises where they will learn and perform reach & throw rescues, learn to swim with their regular clothes on, enter the water with a life jacket and swim using survival strokes.

There will be final assessments taking place to conclude the intensive swimming program and each child will receive a certificate to reflect their achieved swimming level.
