Primary 4 swimming lessons

PRIMARY 4 pupils will start their free block of swimming lessons from August 2016.

POOL  –   Tullos

 TIME:  Class 1  – 9.30-10.15                  Class 2 – 1015-1100

The swimming programme will run from:

Tuesday 23rd August – Tuesday 15th November 2016(inclusive)

No Classes will run on the following dates

October Holidays: Monday 10th – Friday 21st

The pupils will be picked up approximately 30 minutes prior to the start of the session and will be returned to the school as soon as possible after the end of the lesson.

We will rely on parent helpers to accompany us to the pool and back and help with children getting changed etc. If you are able to come and help us out, we would really appreciate a note to make us aware of what day/s you are able to help. We need at least 2 parent helpers every week per class. We usually have the Class Rep to make up a rota, but it is so early this year, that we will have to organise this the best way we can with such short notice! All helpers should be Disclosure Scotland checked.

We hope that all the pupils will enjoy themselves during the lessons and benefit from learning to swim or improving their existing skills.
