Jumping in with your Clothes On

The Grade 1-3’s had a special swim session on Wednesday at Holland-Bloorview. The session was focused on water safety. The students were asked to bring some spare clothes, and each had an opportunity to ‘fall’ into the water with their clothes on. They were all so surprised at how much heavier they felt! They were led through several different exercises including somersaults, back floats with life jackets on, and proper safety steps to take before you jump into the water. It was a unique class that the students really enjoyed. We are halfway through our swimming classes and are already so impressed with the improvements in strength and confidence we are seeing in the students. Keep it up swimmers!
