We have just reached the end of term and all lessons will finish, for the Christmas and New Year break by Saturday 6th December, with the exception of Hurstpierpoint College which has a catch up lesson on 12th December.  For the Spring Term 2015 dates, please refer to the Term Date page on this website.

What a hectic and exciting term it has been.  With the re-opening of St Wilfrid’s School pool just after half-term, it has been really great to welcome back many of our swimmers and to welcome new clients to 1st Swim School.

A big thank you to the Board of Governors at St Wilfrid’s for making the decision to upgrade and re-open the pool, the 1st Swim School team are so happy to be back there.

Lots of brilliant swimming going on at the Hurstpierpoint College pool, with the teachers reporting some amazing progress, particularly by those who had just been promoted to the ‘big pool’ at the beginning of term.  The Junior Lifeguard Academy is going from strength to strength and all attendees can expect their first Lifeguard award at the end of term.  To those who are leaving us at the end of term to train with Marlins Swimming Club, the 1st Swim School team wish you lots of luck and fun (don’t forget to let us know of your gala successes).

Our little swimmers at Robins Garth are a delight.  Definitely budding super stars and I always leave Tuesday morning lessons with a big grin on my face.  A big thank you to Mr Mrs Phipps for allowing us to hire their beautiful pool and for keeping it so warm and clean for out littlest swimmers.

Also, a huge thank you to Princess Royal Hospital pool who helped us out during the year by giving 1st Swim School some temporary pool hire time until St Wilfrid’s could be sorted.  A very generous gesture for which we are extremely grateful.

Big applause for my lovely teachers who have weathered the ups and downs of the past year and have been a tremendous support throughout.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Wishing you all a fantastic Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year.
