The swimmers rotated through 6 different stations that focused on specific skills, including streamlined pushing, floating, kicking and undwerwater submersion.
On May 10th, students from BISP Nursery and Reception took part in a swim exhibition day, during which they demonstrated to their parents and families the skills they have learnt throughout the year in the PE curriculum swimming lessons.
British International School, Phuket’s Learn to Swim Coordinator Luke Curtis was really pleased with the students’ performances. “It was great to see all the swimmers in the water with smiles on their faces with their friends in a stress free, relaxed environment. Through the various skill stations available, the day was a nice reminder that when learning to swim, the most important factors are confidence, competence and skill acquisition, as opposed to how far or fast a swimmer can swim.’
Many of the students also participate in the extra-curricular Flying Fish Learn to Swim programme. In which there are over 260 swimmers from Little Ducks to Year 6 and with swimming ability ranging from complete beginners to competition squad swimmers – many of whom were in action at the weekend at the Flying Fish Invitational Swim Meet.
