Wow, I can’t quite believe that we are half way through this term already! That makes next week SURVIVAL WEEK. I will be covering river and inland water safety this term. So, please make sure that children aged below 7 are wearing t-shirts over their bathers, and those 7 and above wear either shorts and a t-shirt or something like PJs. Please note no goggles are worn in this lesson. Many children are very unsettled about not wearing goggles, which is why this week is so important. It is vital that kids realise that they can still swim with the discomfort of water in their eyes. After all, if they were to fall in, they are not likely to be wearing goggles. I want them to know that they can do this so they do not panic should something happen in real life. Monday classes, you will have your survival class on Monday 13 June due to WA Day.
Secondly, I have been promising people for ages that I would take orders for Toastees rashies for kids and adults to wear in the colder months. If I am able to order a minimum of 10 rashies I can get a slightly cheaper price, and with “Bubbles” my sea turtle logo printed on it.
Here is a link to the website:
These are the prices I can get them for, including a contribution to postage:
Kids top short sleeve sizes 1-6 $47
Kids top short sleeve sizes 8-12 $52
Kids top long sleeve sizes 6-12 $57
Skinny kids tops sizes 0-6 $47
Adults Ocean Series short sleeve XS-XL $57
Adults Ocean Series long sleeve XS-XL $67
Adults Ocean Series short sleeve 2XL-5XL $62
Adults Ocean Series long sleeve 2XL-5XL $72
If there is anything else you see that you want to get, let me know and I will see if I can get a cheaper price for it I don’t recommend buying a larger size to “grow into” – my top last year was slightly too big and I found that water got in and made me feel cold!
The rashies can take up to two weeks to get here, so if you would like to order one, please email me the size and colour you would like by Wednesday 8/6 so I can get them as quickly as possible. As you may have seen there are a couple of nearly new ones for sale by parents. I am hoping that eventually there will be enough in circulation for a good second hand market to be happening amongst yourselves.
Finally, I hope you all saw my recent post on Facebook – we are only the 21st swim school in WA to become a WATERWISE SCHOOL. Mike (my pool operator) and I are really pleased by this, but we need your help. To keep our water usage down we ask you to heed the posters that are in the change room and do your best to reduce water consumption. Thank you!
Have a lovely WA day and happy swimming,
