Swimming Gala – Wednesday 4th July 2012
Your son/daughter has been selected to assist at a Dereham Cluster Primary Schools’ Swimming Gala. It is being held at Dereham Leisure Centre on Wednesday 4th July. The Gala has been organised by the West Norwich and Dereham Schools Sports Partnership and will involve many local Primary schools.
Your son/daughter will get the opportunity to work in a different role from the performance side of PE, one of coaching /leadership. This will draw on the leadership skills they might have gained during PE lessons in Year 9 or from following our Junior Leaders course in Year 10.
On arrival pupils will spend time finding out their role, be it officiating/timekeeper/lane judge. They will then work on poolside, along with the children, ensuring they are in the correct lanes, etc.
We will be leaving at 8.45am, so pupils can arrive dressed in Neatherd PE kit. We will be walking to the Leisure Centre, along with Mrs Greenfield, our former Schools’ Sports Co-ordinator (SSCo) who will also be supervising at the event. We will return to school at approximately 12.30pm. Although pupils will be in school for the afternoon, they can wear their PE kit for the rest of the day.
You will have already seen the Parental Consent form that applies to this trip. This letter just gives you a little more detail about what the day involves. If you need to contact the group on the day you will be able to do so on 078278 70541.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at the school on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, if you have any questions or if you would like any more information.

SSco and PE Teacher
