Our swimming program commences this week, please remind students to bring their togs, towel and change of clothes. This year we will also be employing two additional swimming coaches from the Maleny Swimming Club to ensure class sizes are smaller enabling children to be provided with the most effective coaching possible. Parent spotters are still required for all classes, please volunteer where you can.
The trial of additional coaches was unanimously voted for at out last P&C meeting. It was agreed that $10 was a minimal cost over the term, class sizes would be reduced, instruction for students would be more effective while at the same time assist the school cover rising costs (e.g. electricity and for pool maintenance costs). This is still 5 or more times cheaper that what many other schools are requesting for swimming lessons.
