Year 3 & 4: Swimming Essentials!

If you're starting your school swimming classes this week at the Camberwell Leisure Centre here are a few essential things you need to bring with you:


Swimming Hat: If you don't already have one, you can buy one from the School Office for £2.00. The leisure centre won't allow school children to swim without one.


Swimming Costume/Swimming Trunks: The leisure centre specifies that boys must wear trunks and not loose swim shorts. 


A Towel: Stating the obvious? Sorry!


Goggles: These are ideal as children will be dipping their faces into the water a lot. They can be bought in advance from the swimming pool.


A plastic bag: To bring those soggy swimming things home in... we don't want your children's school bags to end up soaking wet by the end of the day!


Hudson Class Reminder: If your child is in Hudson Class they will need to be in school at 8.30am on Fridays. This allows the class plenty of time to arrive at the pool for their lesson which starts promptly at 9am. Please note: They will not be allowed to swim if they have not been signed in AT SCHOOL first.
