Kia ora whanau,
Next Tuesday Year 1-4 start our Swimsafe program at Pioneer pool for the next two weeks.
Your child will need to bring the following for the Weeks 3 and 4 of this term.
1) Togs (no bikinis please)
2) Clean dry towel
3) A named suitably sized swimming bag (this will need to fit their shoes and their uniform in it while they are swimming)
4) Fitted goggles
Caps are not required but can be worn by preference. We encourage anyone with long hair to please have it tied back.
Please make sure you name all your child's belongings clearly.
Thank you to all those whanau who have volunteered to help support the children at the pool. This will require whanau meeting us at the pool because the buses are very full already. Buses will depart school at
Year 1/2: 11:45
Year 3/4: 12:45
Please meet us at the pool at the following times:
Year 1/2: 12:00
Year 3/4: 1pm
You role is to assist students as they are changing into and out of their togs. This is a supervising role. We are encouraging children to be independent as they change. The routine for changing is everything comes out of their bag, shoes go into the empty bag, then each piece must go into the bag as they take it off, so that the children come out of the changing room with a bag full of their own clothes, and in their hands they have their towels and googles.
Here are the following parents who volunteered to help and the days that they can help on.
Year 1/2 parent helpers:
Year 3/4 parent helpers:
Please let Laura (Year 3/4) or Amber (Year1/2) know urgently if you are unable to help on one of these days. We would like a minimum of 4 parent helpers per session. As you can see some days there are many more helpers which is great, and on some days we only have 4 so we need to know that you will available to help.
