We just wanted to pass on some feedback about our experience of the Kings School swimming classes.
Our 2 kids both attend the Tuesday 7.30pm lesson.
We have noticed how much stronger and more confident in the water and in themselves, they have both become since moving to your swim school.
However, it was the lifesaving lesson that really impressed us. We deliberately sent them to that particular lesson in heavy clothes – hoodies n all! – and the skills, focus, and motivation the teachers gave our kids throughout that lesson, to keep them treading water and learning new and vital skills, was really amazing. Our kids were buzzing after it. So proud of themselves and what they had just achieved, not really realising that throughout all of their enjoyment, they had absorbed so many life critical skills.
And then we went on holiday, 2 weeks ago and we watched our 10 year old and 13 year old simply flourish and have the times of their lives in the ocean.
Both kids jumped off the side of a really big, tourist boat, into the deep ocean without a seconds thought. When we anchored off the coast, they stayed in the water for over an hour at a time, treading water and diving deep down to swim with and chase the fish. They confidently swam further and further, to reach isolated rocks, haul themselves out, climbing up them and leaping confidently off.
The highlight for my previously anxious daughter (strong swimmer but nervous about the deep sea / creatures etc) – was swimming out to a huge 30 foot rock, bouldering up the side of it past half a dozen nervous Turkish blokes, shrugging her shoulders at them and without a thought leaping right off the top! Everyone was utterly flabbergasted!
None of this would have happened without your brilliant swim school and exceptional teachers. I can not thank them enough.
