Harakeke and Pohutukawa Swimming - Term 3

By Lisa Bengtsson | Posted: Thursday July 23, 2020

This information is about the swimming lessons for students in Harakeke and Pohutukawa hubs.

Term 3 swimming will be taking place at Keith Spry Pool in Johnsonville using both the learner pool and lanes. There are 5 weeks of lessons, every Monday starting on Monday 24 August and with the last being on Monday 21 September. 

Students and staff will travel to the pool by bus.

The cost of swimming is $46 per student. The cost covers the qualified swim instructors, pool hire and bus transport. Invoices are now online and can be paid through the online shop. Payment should be made by Mon 17th August to ensure your child(ren)’s participation.

Everyone (except those who already swim with EasySwim) needs to go to the Easy Swim website and go to “Click here to open school survey” to provide Easy Swim with details about your child and to help with grouping for their lessons.

Students need to bring togs, a towel and a swim cap, all in a named swimming bag. Goggles are also very useful, but not compulsory.

As part of this programme, each group of students will also have a 30 minute library session at Waitohi prior to their swimming lesson. 

Please note: There is no Northern Zone Swimming competition this year (due to time constraints after the lockdown). Unfortunately due to limited pool availability, we will also not be able to hold an Amesbury School Swimming Sports this year.
