Year 4 - Year 6 Interschool sport is a feature of the curriculum that PBSS values. In recent years the cost of this has been restrictive for some families. As with everything we do at PBSS we aim to ensure that all educational experiences are as affordable and inclusive as possible, and therefore Term 2 interschool sport will be offered slightly differently in 2017 to ensure maximum participation for all interested students.
The idea we are currently planning for is that all students pay a fee of $40, which is significantly lower than previous years. This includes all students who choose to participate in our school offered Learn to Surf program, and those selected to represent the school in netball, soccer and rugby league.
We are able to offer this through the use of parent transport for soccer and rugby league. This should also alleviate the issues with buses running late each week as the bus will not need to go to three different venues across the coast on very busy Friday afternoons.
Surf Option Clarification
At this stage we are investigating the option for two surf programs. The school offered Learn to Surf program will definitely go ahead at the $40 cost. This will involve the basic fundamentals of surfing and is not for experienced surfers as it will be held in thigh deep water.
For more advanced surfers we are currently receiving prices from externally run surf schools. It is envisaged that the cost of this program will be significantly more than the $40 for the school programs. We will provide parents with more details about this as soon as possible.
