A three day Swimming and Coastal excursion has become an annual event for Years 2-6 students at Delegate Public School.
Students are given intensive swimming instruction in a small group setting in the wonderful facilities at Pambula Aquatic Centre.
Delegate Public School principal, Carol Sellers said the heated pool and friendly instructors provided an ideal environment for non-swimmers and swimmers alike.
“The two lessons per day showed great improvement in swimming abilities, enthusiasm and confidence in the water,” she said.
Students, staff and parent helpers all stayed in cabins at the friendly Pambula Discovery Park, Pambula.
“Even though our students are accustomed to kangaroos, they encountered the very friendly, curious kind at the caravan park.”
The three day program also included a visit to the Panboola where a tour guide kept them well informed on the fauna and flora plus the heritage of this unique estuarine and freshwater wetland.
“Our students made good use of the milder coastal weather and made sandcastles and even attempted to bury their teacher Mr Farran,” Ms Sellers said.
“It was a very successful excursion very well catered for by Delegate P&C members and transport made possible by volunteers and the Delegate Golf Club bus.
“Thank you to all staff and volunteers - looking forward to next year.”
