Swimming is a skill which serves people well throughout their lives. Indeed, it can save lives. All children must attend the swimming lessons, as this is part of the P.E. programme in the revised Curriculum and is not optional.
Children from 1st to 4th class have the opportunity to attend swimming lessons in K-Leisure, Naas. This is on a six-week rotation.
Swimming is organised by the PTA and this year the cost is €50 for 6 lessons or €8.50 per lesson. Sessions must be paid in full as pool hire, instructors and transport must be paid for in advance.
The children are taught by experienced swimming instructors who work through a structured programme. The children in the Assisted Learning Classes go swimming on Fridays.
