School swimming lessons are held at the beginning of Term 2 and all Nightcliff Primary School students (including Pre-School students) can attend. Lessons are held at the Nightcliff Aquatic Centre – approximately five minutes from the school grounds. Costs for lessons include pool entry, a certificate and swimming instruction from qualified Royal Life Saving Society instructors. Classes start walking to the pool approximately 15 minutes prior to their lesson time and depart the pool immediately following their swimming lesson.
What Your Child Needs
For school swimming lessons, your child needs to bring:
- A swim shirt for sun protection (to be worn in the pool)
- A towel
- Sunscreen (due to health reasons, sunscreen cannot be shared)
- A bucket hat
- Thongs/slip-on shoes for the walk to and from the pool
- Goggles (optional)
Your child’s belongings should be named and placed in a labelled plastic/swimming bag.
Pre-School Swimming Lessons
Parents are welcome to come to the pool, as extra hands are always welcome – especially on the walk to and from the pool.
