LA Code: 

Feel like having some watery fun and fitness for the last part of the term? Think you might want to check out a different pool that you haven't visited before? If your answer is yes to these two questions then this 4.2 block might be the one for you!

This class will run in Orange Block on Fridays. Students will meet at school after morning tea for a briefing before the group catches a bus to the pool of the week for some swimming fun and relaxation. We will be visiting different pools in Christchurch starting with the brand new pool Te Pou Toetoe in Linwood and including Graham Condon and QE2 pools. While students will be supervised, this is not a structures class with swimming lessons. It is more for swimming fun and water activities with friends.

There will be a small cost to students of $3.70 each week (for 3 weeks) plus bus fare to and from the different swimming venues we will visit. Students need to bring their money to pay at the venue on the day as this cost will not be added to school accounts. If they do not bring their money or gear for the day they will miss out on the trip for that week.

This group will be restricted to 20 approx. Students need to be able to manage themselves in water with confidence and be able to bring togs and towel, money and bus card each week.
