Time to Make a Splash!

Starting on Monday September 24th all students in K2 and Grade 1 will be taking part in their first swimming unit of the year. Swimming will continue until Friday October 19th. 

Our swimming program is overseen by our aquatics coordinator Mr. Hamilton. He brings with him an amazing swim system that focuses on skill progressions and water confidence, while maintaining a safe and fun environment. You can read more details on the program here.

 

Please make sure your child(ren) is ready to swim by sending to school:

  • swimming costume (not bikinis, swimsuits with hoods, rash vests, swim shirts)
  • goggles
  • swim cap (if hair is below shoulders)
  • towel

 

For more details on Swimming Expectations please read the Aquatics blog.  

If there are any special requirements for, or exclusions from, swimming over the next 4 weeks please inform Martin Hamilton as well as your child’s PE teacher.

Exercise Avengers!!!

Grade 1 students have been looking at how they can become ‘Exercise Avengers’, just like Captain Cardio, Speedy Steve, Super Strength, Powerful Penny, Fabulous Flex and Mindful Matt. Students have explored different physical activities and how our play spaces at UNIS provide opportunities to become, a balanced Exercise Avenger. This week students have been using the Book Creator app, to make a collection of activities that will help them become an Exercise Avenger.
