Grade 5 and 6 Enjoy Our Annual Swimming Lessons
Over the past two weeks the Grade 5 and 6 students (along with the Grade 3s and 4s) have been involved in a swimming program at Kew Recreation Centre.
We have had the chance to shore up our swimming skills in the lead up to summer – something that is very important for the warmer months ahead, as we expect to be involved in more water based activities at the pool and the beach.
Yesterday we had the chance to practise some ‘survival swimming’. Students were asked to bring a set of clothes to wear in the pool and, along with a life jacket, students were required to get used to this far bulkier attire in the water. We even played out some mock rescues with our classmates, using rope and hand signals to bring them to safety.
On our final day we enjoyed playing a few water sports and games to finish off an excellent couple of weeks in the water.
What an excellent time we had at the pool – we can’t wait to have another turn next year!
