At Moresby School, we value swimming and ensure that our children have opportunities to develop their skills in this area.
Our current Year 6 cohort took part in a 10-week course of swimming lessons in 2015-16, when they were in Year 4. Since Year 4, three children have joined this cohort.
The children self-assess themselves as follows:
- 7 out of 14 say they can swim 25m confidently
- 7 out of 14 say they can swim at least two different strokes confidently (given the choice of front crawl, back crawl, breaststroke and butterfly)
- 2 out of 14 can perform safe self-rescue in a range of situations
