Interm Swimming

Interm Swimming

Interm Swimming is a school-based swimming program for children from Pre-primary to Year 7. It provides quality swimming lessons across the State to ensure children develop vital swimming and water safety skills.

Lessons operate in line with current health advice. Physical distancing and good hygiene practices are in place.

We meet the cost of Interm Swimming lessons for all primary students in public schools, and for primary students in rural and remote non-government schools.

The program is also available to primary students in metropolitan non-government schools on a user pays basis. Refer to Metropolitan interm swimming non-government school conditions and invoicing rates.

​​​​​Parents and carers usually need to pay a fee to cover transport and entry costs into the swimming venue. Contact your child’s school for more information.

Participating schools can download the Interm Swimming enrolment form for parents to complete and return to the school before the start of lessons. Forms are also available in a number of languages other than English below.

​​​​​Interm Swimming lessons operate across the State with the majority of programs conducted at swimming pools, and some conducted at beach or open water venues where possible. Refer to 2023 interm swimming dates and locations.
