Description of Activities:
All students will be participating in three recreational swims. Qualified lifeguards will be on the pool deck during the sessions. We are unable to participate in swim lessons, facilitated by swim instructors, due to a staffing shortage at the pool this year.
Group 1 – Tuesdays (May 24, May 31, June 7)
9:00-9:45 – Div 11 (Boyd) & Div 12 (Kehl)
9:45-10:30 – Div 2 (Tyssen) & Div 4 (Gecse)

The pool requires a ratio of one adult for every two children 5 or 6 years old. As a result, we will need many parent volunteer in our Kindergarten and Grade 1 classes.

Div 11 – Boyd
Div 12 – Kehl
Div 13 – Porter
Div 14 – Sudbury/Knipe
If you can volunteer as a swimming supervisor please indicate your availability when filling out the permission form.
Note: Criminal Record Checks are not required for parents acting as swimming supervisors in the pool. However, Criminal Record Checks are required for any parent helping supervise in the change rooms.
Students should come to the pool with swimsuits on below their clothing. Students will also need to bring a towel and plastic bag to put their wet clothes in after they are done swimming.
As always, thank you for your support and please feel free to contact the school at (250) 832-7195 if you have any questions or concerns.
