Swimming Sports

We're learning to swim for fun and to stay safe! 

Each year we receive funding to provide swimming lessons for our Year 2 to 7 students at a local pool.  This is a compulsory activity - just like maths and reading - as we're sure you agree that learning to swim is necessary given our proximity to the lake, sea and rivers. 

Every year we hold our school swimming sports in Term 1.  This is so we can select children aged 9 and above, who meet the criteria, to then go on and compete in the Pegasus Zone swimming sports, and hopefully then on to the Canterbury Zones! 
Due to roll increases and no longer having access to a school pool for daily practice, our swimming sports event is an ‘opt–in’ event, targeting swimmers that can manage an unassisted swim of 25m (one length). Zone qualification events are held over 50m.
