The Department of Education has developed a Water Safety and Swimming Education Program (WSSEP) for Prep to Year 10. Eight lessons of instruction and skill development support a whole-school approach to water safety and swimming education.
The program is aligned to the draft National swimming and water safety framework and the Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education.
The program outlines a developmental sequence of competencies for each band of years and is grouped into categories: Entries and exits, Buoyancy, Submergence, Swimming for survival, Survival sequence, Rescue and lifesaving and Water safety knowledge.
Dress code : School uniform
What to bring : Swimmers, towel, goggles, swim cap.

The Miami Pool will be adhering to the Queensland Government's approved COVID Safe Industry Plan in compliance with Queensland Chief Health Officer's Restrictions on Businesses, Activities and Undertakings Direction (No. 4) (or its successor). This means they will have limits to the amount of people on the premises at one time and therefore unfortunately parents are unable to attend lessons. The pool will also need to maintain their trace records by keeping a list of names and time in attendance.
Please ensure that you have returned the Activity Consent and Medical form and the Survey from the Miami Aquatic Centre to your class teacher. This survey will help to place students accurately into lessons to accommodate their respective levels of ability.
