Stage 2 and 3 Swimming

Well the weather has been terrific for the start of the school swimming program.  The program is designed to be both progressive and educational for all students. The things the children learn over the years they attend is different.  Obviously the intensive 2 week ‘learn to swim’ program is designed to build their confidence and ability in the water.  Stage 2 is more about correct swimming technique and introducing survival skills.  In Stage 3 we build on those survival skills and add very practical and real survival techniques.  The students will even have the opportunity to practice their CPR on manikins.  This is always fun!  The program will provide both confidence in and around the water and skills on how to save their own or someone else’s life while having fun.
