Bigga Public School Students Learn to Swim

Swim Lessons 2014  1Bigga Public School students have attended 5 days of learn to swim classes in Crookwell thanks to the assistance of a $1,000 donation from the Veolia Mulwaree Trust.

The small school of only 6 children struggles to meet the costs associated with transporting the children to and from Crookwell for the valuable swimming classes and has previously resorted to volunteer parent transport to ensure the children don’t miss out on these essential lessons.

The Veolia Mulwaree Trust donation enabled the school to book a bus to transport students over the 5 days.

“Making sure our children are able to attend the school organised swim school is extremely important.  Learning to swim is a necessary part of our children’s lives and even at a remote school you still need to provide the same opportunities as larger schools”. Mrs Joanne Marshall, Parents and Citizens President said.

As with any school the Bigga Parents and Citizens Association works hard to raise funds to assist the school and its students.

“The donation from Veolia Mulwaree Trust has not only assisted with an important part of our children’s lives, learning to swim, but has also helped the children by releasing some of the funds raised by the parents to spend on other resources to benefit the children of Bigga Public School”. Mrs Marshall said.

The Veolia Mulwaree Trust is pleased to assist the students of Bigga Public School.
