Swimming Program

Black Hill Primary School considers swimming to be an essential part of our Health and Physical Education Program. Students in Years 1 and 2 take part in a water safety program in December each year and Year 3-6 students take part in a two week intensive swimming program each year. In addition, students in Years 5 and 6 undertake an additional ‘open water’ experience in the local area designed to ensure they are able to cope with more difficult situations in the water. The focus of the program is to increase water safety awareness and to further develop swimming and survival skills in and around the water. All instructors are Austswim qualified and work with the school staff to deliver individually tailored swimming programs.
