Half Term News Update

October 24, 2011

Hope you are all enjoying the half-term break and enjoying the mild weather.

Just a reminder that there will not be any lessons at Hurst College on Friday 4th November as well as this week.

We are always delighted to hear about our past pupils and their achievements and would like to congratulate Alex Holman and Sophie Battams for their recent success in representing Starfish in a swimming gala.

 Alex and Sophie both learnt to swim with us at 1st Swim School before moving on to the Starfish division of Marlins Swimming Club.  Alex, on his first ever swimming gala, achieved a bronze medal and Sophie, two golds,  we are so proud of them both.

We are also very proud of our student teachers.  Abbi & Tom (Friday teachers) started at 1st Swim School some years back as young non-swimmers. They both returned to take their Duke of Edinburgh award with us and, in the process, gain their STA Student Teacher qualification. 

Currently, we have two Duke of Edinburgh Award pupils helping us out.  William on a Wednesday and Joshua on a Thursday.  Both are also currently working toward student teacher status.  It is 1st Swim School policy to nuture our swimmers and our young trainees in order that they achieve their maximum potential.

Enjoy the rest of the week.
