School Swimming (Prep, 1 & 3)
The Prep Teachers are thrilled to share the wonderful experience we had with our kids at Knox Leisureworks for a one-week intensive swimming program. It was a fantastic opportunity for the Preps to not only improve their swimming skills, but to also develop a greater understanding of water safety. The swimming teachers at Knox Leisureworks were exceptional, providing expert guidance and engaging lessons throughout the program.
The entire week ran smoothly, and we would like to express our gratitude to the parent helpers who generously dedicated their time and support. Without their support this program would not have been possible.
One of the highlights for our Preps was the bus journey to the pool! It was their first time on a school bus, and they were filled with excitement each trip.
Overall, it was a very rewarding experience for our Preps and we heard from many parents how well they slept that week! We are very proud and delighted to have witnessed their enthusiasm and growth throughout the swimming week.
A few weeks ago, the Year 1 students had our Swimming Program at Knox Leisureworks. We were filled with excitement on the Monday when we arrived at school with our swimming bags in tow. After a short bus ride, we got changed into our bathers and begun our first lesson.
Throughout the week we learnt all about different swimming strokes, practicing our kicking, floating, freestyle and backstroke. On the Thursday we had a fantastic fun day where we got to go on the Slide and play some great water-based games like Volleyball and Mr Wolf! We concluded the week with some lessons on water safety. It was so funny having to swim in the pool with our regular clothes on!
Well done on a great week of swimming, Grade 1’s
In Week 6, the Year Three students participated in a week full of fun at Knox Leisureworks swimming pool. Students consolidated a wide range of skills in their daily lessons including vital water safety techniques.
The students loved participating in the program. The following statements summarises their experience:
Max – I thought it was fun being able to swim with our clothes on during safety day. It was really hard to swim when you were in clothing.
Audrey – Fun day was good. We got to play some fun games.
Noah – I liked safety day when we got to swim with our eyes open underwater and we were not able to use goggles!
The teachers and support staff were so impressed by the effort, responsibility, and CARE values the students upheld whilst representing our school. Well done Year Three students!

Division Girls Footy Gala Day
On Thursday the 8th of June, 18 girls, Peter Baker and myself headed to Kings Park on a wet day to play some football. The girls had an absolute blast of a day. They were covered from head to toe in mud by the last game with huge smiles on their faces. The team placed 6th out of 14 schools, moving up in the ranks from 8th place last year. A huge thank you to Peter Baker who coached on the day along with Emily Airs who was injured, who proved to be an amazing assistant coach.
