A Thuismitheoirí, a Chairde
Beidh an snámh ag tosnu ar ais arís Dé hAoine 23-4
go dtí 28-5-2010 (6 sheachtain).
3 sheisiún gach lá:
Seisiún 1 9:45 – 10:25 Rang 6, 3 agus Naí Mhóra
(parents need to be at the pool at 9:30)
Seisiún 2 10:25 – 11:05 Rang 1, 4 agus ½ Naí.
(parents need to be at the pool at 10:10)
Seisiún 3 11:05 – 11:45 Rang 5, 2 agus ½ Naí.
(parents need to be at the pool at 10:50)
It is essential that parents of children in Infants (or those looking
after them) are at the pool 15 mins. before the swim session to assist
in changing. As all the children i Naí Shóis + most i
Naí Shínsear need help in dressing etc.... it is most
important that if you cannot be there to undress and dress your own
child, then you let us know in writing before hand who you have asked
to take your place i.e. another adult eg. childminder, or other parent.
Children should bring a separate swimming bag to school big enough to
hold all clothes and go in locker while swimming. Your child’s
name should be marked clearly on the bag, swimsuit, towel, goggles (all
children should wear goggles), armbands (if required) as well as on
all clothes worn by your child including under wear. In order that the
swimming teachers can use your child’s name, please write your
child’s name down the centre of his/her swimming cap in large
letters with a permanent pen. Children with long hair should keep it
tied back and should bring a turban towel/small extra towel to wear
over their shoulders back at school while their hair is wet. All children
should wear a hat/cap after swimming to keep head as warm as possible.
As smaller items of clothing often get wet, we also suggest that children
bring a spare pair of socks and underwear.
The following is the cost for your child’s swimming course, which
we would appreciated being sent in by Friday March 26th, le bhur dtoil.
€40.00 for 1 child in a family, €75.00 for 2 children &
€100.00 for 3 children
(The cost, including bus, is significantly less than that of lessons
alone, if going outside school.)
With Aquatics given a very important emphasis in the P.E. Curriculum
we look forward to all children benefiting immensely from this year’s
swimming course. We recommend that you bring your children swimming
over the coming weeks so that they are familiar with the pool surroundings
and are up to their appropriate level for grading on the first day of
lessons. Go n-éirí linn!
