Homeschool Swimming

It’s that time of year! Red Cross swimming lessons for homeschoolers are once again being offered at Harry Bailey Aquatic Centre. They will start the morning of Friday September 18, 2009, and go for 8 weeks.
Prices are: preschool – Level 4 $55, Levels 5 – 8 $65 and Levels 9 – 10 $75. This includes the 45 minute free swim after the lessons—a great opportunity to meet and socialize with other homeschoolers! Moms swim free and can utilize the hot tub and sauna! If there are any families not registered in lessons who would like to come for the free swim only, they are more than welcome. We charge $2 per person. Please pay Mary Lissel.

PLEASE NOTE: registration will not take place via phone or email. There will be a registration afternoon on Friday September 4 at Harry Bailey from 1 – 3 pm, at which time payment is due by cheque or cash. There is a Family Swim scheduled at the pool during this time, so come and register and enjoy a swim! Regular pool fees apply.

There will also be representatives from CHESS (Christian Home Educators of Saskatoon and Surrounding area) and the Saskatoon Unschoolers. Each of these groups will be bringing their library of books, which are available to borrow at that time.

If you absolutely cannot register on September 4th, please email Janina Chamberlain at hoylingj@hotmail.com or Mary Lissel at
mlissel@sasktel.net to arrange for mail in registration.
