Adelaide West Special Education Centre

Swimming

Qualified swimming instructors are employed by DECD to provide each student with one swimming session per week. This is part of a student’s Health and Physical Education curriculum. A Swimming Consent form must be updated annually signed by families. All students who are incontinent are required to wear ‘eenies’. These can be purchased from the swimming instructor-in-charge.

Clearly named bathers/’eenies’ and towels are to be sent to school on your child’s swimming day in a waterproof bag. Items such as deodorant and hair conditioner will be used if supplied. Students are transported on school buses to Novita Children’s Services swimming pool located at Regency Park for swimming sessions.
