Mater Dei students participate in a variety of sporting programs both on the school grounds and in the local community.
It is critical that all students learn basic water awarness and water safety as well as learning to swim. Mater Dei School is fortunate to have an indoor heated swimming pool and so is able to offer the following activities:
- Weekly training and instruction sessions that focus on water safety
- Intensive learn-to-swim and water safety programs
- Recreational swimming incorporated into sport programs
The swimming lessons are an integral part of student's sport, physical education or special focus programs.
All teachers or instructors possess the AUSTSWIM Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety qualificationsand at least one of the supervising teachers possess recognised current training in Cardio-Pulmonary Resusciatation (CPR).
The cost of weekly swimming lessons has been included in the Mater Dei school fees, therefore students DO NOT need to bring money for their lessons each week.
