Trips & Activities

Trips

School trips and activities are included in the school fees. A range of activities and trips are organised during the year to support and enhance the delivery of our classroom programmes.

Parents give permission for students to attend trips outside the school by signing the “Permission for Excursions” on the Student Data Form each year. Where students travel away from the school, parents will be notified through the school newsletter or a separate letter; when the trip is occurring, the time children will leave and return to school and the mode of transport. Should a parent not wish their child to attend a particular trip they must contact the child’s teacher.

Swimming

All children are expected to participate in class swimming lessons as part of the Health and Physical Education Curriculum. Water confidence and water safety skills are the main emphasis of the school programme.

All students are required to wear bathing caps. A note is required if students cannot swim for health reasons. It is vital that students do not swim for two weeks following a bout of diarrhoea.

The school travel to a local pool for lessons over an intensive few weeks in Term 4 each year.

P.E. & Sport
For health reasons all children are asked to bring a t-shirt and shorts to change into for physical education and sport. It is compulsory for Years 4, 5 & 6 students to wear the school sports uniform.
