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.
