Learn to Swim

   

We look forward to seeing you at the College’s heated pool. We want to make swimming for yourself and your family an enjoyable and rewarding learning experience. This pool is a fantastic new facility that has been built because of the hard work of many parents and friends within the College community and we acknowledge the hard work of these people.

It is important to remember that the most influential person for your child is always yourself, so be positive about learning to swim/squad training. Treat swimming as fun and speak of it happily around your child.

Arrive at the pool for your lesson/squad session with plenty of time to spare. Please do not compare your child with others as all children develop at different rates. Encourage your child to do their personal best and always praise their efforts.

If you have any queries do not hesitate to talk to Peter at an appropriate time. He is only too happy to help and wants to make your time spent at the pool an enjoyable and happy experience for both you and your child. See you at the pool!
