One of the many positives for students attending Kenmore State School is that we have a pool onsite and that they get to participate in an intensive Swimming Program during school hours in term one and in term four.
Our P&C recognises the importance of swimming for our children and funds Learn to Swim coaches to work together with our PE teacher to ensure all students are receiving professional coaching during their weekly swimming lesson time. Students work on stroke development, swim and survive techniques and are currently building their fitness and stamina for our annual Swimathon in week 9.
We encourage all students to participate, a note from parents to the teacher is essential if students are unwell or unable to swim. Students need to remember to pack - togs, a rash vest, a towel, goggles, swimming cap, sunscreen and a water bottle.
