At Cranbourne East Primary School we are proud to offer all of our students the opportunity to participate in swimming programs that are conducted by professionally trained instructors. Students in Year Foundation (Prep) to Year 4 participate in a program conducted by the YMCA at local aquatic venues. This program teaches our students the valuable life skills of swimming and stroke technique along with the importance of safety around the water allowing for confident, safe and fun participation in water settings.
Students in Year 5 and Year 6 learn valuable open water skills through the Open Water Learning Program conducted by Life Saving Victoria. Students are taught a range of skills including reading water conditions, rescues and swimming skills providing students with the skills needed to safely enjoy all water settings.
