R-5 Swimming Information Update

Swimming is certainly looking a little different this year and has/is presenting some challenges that are certainly not ideal.
Unfortunately we don’t have much control over a number of the procedures shared with us recently. Please note these again below:COVID 19 Procedures

We ask that schools advise parents not to attend due to COVID restrictions, only volunteers assisting with supervision and necessary bus ratios may be in attendance.

All teachers, SSOs and volunteers must scan the QR code at the gate.

The change rooms have number restrictions therefore we will use a “Get In, Participate, Get Out” procedure which means students:

  1. Arrive at centre in bathers, dressing gown or a windcheater etc, thongs or slip on shoes,  towel and goggles.
  2. Participate.
  3. Get out of pool and dry themselves, put on dressing gown or windcheater etc and board bus.
  4. Change back at school.

We will however be organising our own changing areas (not toilets) here at school. It will more than likely be a couple of spare rooms – windows covered over.

Considering this information it is recommended that students perhaps bring along an extra towel or extra clothing that is easy to slip on/off that can be worn/used during bus transport.

Thank you for your understanding with these different arrangements for this year.
