About the program As Australians, we spend a lot of our time in and around the water; it’s a big part of our culture. For this reason, it’s important that our students learn water safety and survival skills, so that they can continue to enjoy aquatic activities. To help achieve this goal, the Department of Education (DoE) runs the School Swimming and Water Safety Program. This is a Government-funded program that is free for students. All that’s required is that the schools meet pool entry and transport costs. Notes and payment are due by the 8th of March 2021.

National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. Reconciliation Week is 27 May to 3 June every year. During this time students, staff commemorated two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey – the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision. They read Indigenous stories, investigate the local Dahrug and Garingai languages and had yarns about the significance of the week but also paying respects to past and present and future Traditional Indigenous Custodians. If you would like to know more see Our reconciliation action plan from the Department of Education or alternatively the Reconciliation Australia website.
