Swimming

Children from 1st to 4th class  go swimming annually, in 6 week blocks.

This is part of the aquatics strand in P.E., older and younger classes learn about water safety during this time.

Swimming and water safety are very important skills, which the children are so lucky to have the opportunity to learn in school. 6 weeks is however, a very short time, so it is very important for parents to continue to practise this skill outside school in the pool or if you’re brave enough, in the cold Irish sea.
