Our FS1 children had a fantastic time on Thursday as they kicked off their new term with their first swimming lesson!
Coach Anze welcomed the class of excited 3 and 4 year olds to the pool at our Kisongo campus and the children couldn't wait to get started. The weather was perfect and all the children were brave and ready to try new things. The children listened well and followed all of Coach Anze's instructions. What a wonderful bunch of water babies!
There are many great life-long benefits of childhood swimming, and plenty of wonderful reasons to start early. Research has shown that early swimmers perform better socially and academically, and that swimming from an early age:
- enhances gross motor skill development and coordination
- promotes personality development
- leads to greater happiness, health, and development of the ‘whole’ child.
