On Friday the 17th November, CMS is holding our annual Swimming carnival at the town pool. This letter includes some important information for you and your child about the day.
All students will be required to be at school at the normal time.There are to be NO students dropped off at the pool. Teachers will mark the rolls at school and then all students will walk to the pool from CMS.
All students attending the day will be given a band according to their swimming ability. During the swimming program, students have been assessed against the swimming proficiency assessment to establish whether they can swim. Students will be issued with a coloured band indicating their proficiency. If students have not completed the proficiency assessment, they will not be permitted to enter the water.
Students are welcome to bring their own food to the carnival and the SRC will also operating a BBQ for students who wish to purchase food and drink.
Once students are at the carnival no one will be able to leave unless they have a parent / carer collect them. At the completion of the day all students will walk back to school to be dismissed from school at 3:00pm.
I would like to take this opportunity to mention that the carnival is a normal school day, and your child’s attendance is compulsory. These days provide a fantastic opportunity for students and staff to relate to each other on different levels and often build more successful relationships with each other. If students do not return the consent form then they will required to attend structured classes at CMS on this day. Parents / carers are also more than welcome to come along and support the school and your children.
Please ensure your child returns a signed consent form to their homegroup teacher by Friday 10th November.
