Our swimming days follow the schedule at Queen Alexandra Middle School. Our day is on their Day 4. Please keep and refer to the school year calendar provided.
Please note that swimming classes are a privilege. Swimming is not part of the standard curriculum, and is a sweet perk that students at Dundas enjoy due to our proximity to Queen A. Students from Room 241 will be expected to meet their weekly goals an agreed upon number of times before being allowed to participate in swimming classes. Further, swimming instructors have a 1 Strike Rule during swimming lessons. Children will be expected to follow instructions and behave according to safety rules at all times. There are no second chances.
Participation for students is at the sole discretion of the swimming instructor as they are liable for your child's safety. If they feel they cannot rely on your child to follow safety guidelines or instructions given, they will not allow your child to take part for the rest of the school year. Students who find themselves banned from swimming classes will remain at Dundas and will be supervised while the rest of the class goes to swimming. I cannot stress enough how important it is for children to understand this, and ask that parents and caregivers reinforce this message at home. I would hate to see anyone excluded from participating due to poor choices.
