For the first seven Thursdays of Term 2 all Junior School students were involved in our swimming program, conducted by the staff of Swim and Survival Academy in Wendouree. Students were organised into small ability-based groups to further their ability and confidence in and around water, including water safety awareness as well as the usual focus upon improving individual swimming skills.
It was great to celebrate our students' achievements at the end of the seven-week program and we thank the staff of the Academy for their efforts teaching our students. A big "Thank you" to parents for sending your children along each week with their swimming gear, towel, goggles, etc. and I'm sure a small sigh of relief that you don't have to organise these again until - next year ! Ken Nuridin, Head of Junior School.
