This year it is the children in Year 4 who have the opportunity to go swimming. This is in partnership with the Tameside Sports Trust School Swimming Service at Duckinfield swimming baths.
This will take place on a Wednesday starting 17th September. They will leave school at 1.40 and return in time for the end of the school day.
Can you please make sure your child has a full swimming kit and towel. Boys have to wear tight swimming shorts or trunks (the baggy ones are not allowed by the pool’s guidelines and regulations). Girls must wear a one-piece swimming costume (not bikini) and a swimming cap. The swimming caps can be bought at the baths at a cost of £1.75 for a latex cap or £3.50 for a silicone cap. Please make sure any money that is sent on the day is clearly labelled in an envelope.
The children are excited about this opportunity and I’m sure they will all be swimming like little fish by the end of it.
