We have successfully started our swimming program again.  Children from Reception class to Year 4 are all following a special aquatic program, which ensures they make progress and develop their swimming techniques and stamina in the water. Our team of professional instructors are skilled at teaching Primary age children.  They demonstrate, encourage and support all our students whilst making the learning experience fun.  After half term, Reception children will stop swimming and the session is given to Years 5 & 6 on alternate weeks so our older children can learn life-saving skills and water polo.

We swim at Mlynska Dolina and were delighted to find that the girls’ changing rooms and bathrooms have been renovated over the summer. Brand new non-slip flooring has been put down, improving the safety conditions.  The water temperature is maintained at 28 degrees, which is the highest possible temperature according to hygiene rules.  We test the temperature each day.

Swimming is an important life skill.  The most important thing for us is to see happy, safe and confident children in the water, which I can proudly say we do!
