Term 1 swimming lessons focused on revision of basic strokes, pool safety and beginner rescue techniques.
Rescue instruction started with keeping safe when helping others and identifying objects (such as basketballs, pool noodles or kickboards) that would support a swimmer in danger. Students then practised gaining a swimmer’s attention, throwing the item accurately and assisting them to swim towards them.
A huge thankyou to our two wonderful swimming instructors Shirley Lands and Jodie Ames. Your skill, knowledge and encouragement have helped so many children become more confident and capable swimmers.
