This week is the STA Learn to Swim week. The STA are busy promoting the importance of learning to swim.

At 1st Swim School we are passionate about teaching our children to both swim well and know how to keep safe both in and around water. We feel that swimming should be both a lifeskill and one of the joys of life.

We are, currently, taking all our children through their STA ILSP awards as we believe that their hard work and progress deserves to be acknowledged.

Swim School Director and Manager, Phil and Phil are ‘knee deep’ in certificates and badges ready for end of term presentations.

Keep up the good work swimmers
