Next week we will begin our annual swimming program at the Peter Krenz centre in Eaglehawk. The swimming program provides students with an intensive week long experience that helps to build and consolidate water awareness, survival and swimming skills. Swimming is an activity where the range of ability levels can vary dramatically and the school works hard with the instructors at the pool to cater for all students’ skills and experience. However it is also important to remember that for those students who are highly accomplished swimmers the week of instruction will not be focussed on changing stroke techniques and that for our weakest swimmers a week in the pool will not be adequate to ensure a young person’s safety around water. We hope that all students will develop their skills and confidence through the program and most importantly have fun with their peers. I want to thank Mr Milner for his organisation of the program and all of the parent helpers who have volunteered to assist to make sure that the students have the most enjoyable experience possible.
