Swimming

Swimming Lessons

Here in St. Pat’s we consider swimming to be an essential life skill. Within the school children are taught Water Safety during their SPHE lessons.

All children participate in a block of swimming lessons every year in Leisureland, Salthill. Children are accompanied at all times by school staff and are taught by trained swimming instructors.

All children (beginners, intermediate and experienced) are enabled to participate as they are grouped according to ability.

We highly encourage our children to participate in swimming both inside and out of school.

St. Pat’s Swimming Team

St. Pat’s competes in a number of swimming competitions ranging from individual races and relays.

A big thank you to parents who train with our children outside of school hours.

This year boys in our school have gotten through to the Connacht and All Ireland individual and relay races.

A big congratulations to Michael Keegan who as part of Corrib Water Polo Club won the All Ireland U13 Water Polo Mixed Cup.
