Swimming & Gym Program 2021

 Dear Parents,

All children will be attending swimming & gymnastic classes in Term 2.  The program  will now commence on Monday 26th April and run for five consective weeks.  

We suggest that children wear their bathers under their school uniform.  Their uniform for the day will be school tracksuits or sports shorts and polos. We request that children bring a small backpack containing towel, underwear, thongs/sandals and a plastic bag for wet swimwear. It is also highly recommended for your child to have a pair of goggles.  All items should be clearly named.

Children will be eating lunch prior to leaving school and we ask that children bring a small bottle of  water to have during gym and pieces of fruit for easy eating.

We will be departing from school at approx 11:45 am and returning by approximately      3:15 pm. We will be travelling on a bus provided by Ballarat Coachlines.

Thank you for your support.

Principal and Staff: St Patrick’s School, Gordon.
