Swimming Program Years 3 to 6
Held in February each year our annual Swimming Program will run over a two week period (timetable to be sent home to families). This is a terrific opportunity for the students to have lessons at their own standard: water familiarisation, stroke development and a safety program. This is also great training for those children who will move beyond our own sports to the Division, Region and possibly State swimming championships.
The Swimming program is considered a compulsory component of the Sports program at YCP-12. Each class will have 3-4 instructors per session, for 6 sessions, culminating in the Year 3-6 House Swimming Carnival held at the end of February each year.
The 5/6s also participate in an open water day with Life Saving Victoria and a paddle-boarding and safety program run by a local provider at the foreshore each year.
Payment for the swimming program is included in the Essential Educational Items of the Curriculum Support Levy.
