Beginner swimmers at Parktown HS for Girls show off their skills at Old Mutual Swimathon
Seven beginner swimmers at Parktown High School for Girls participated in the Old Mutual Swimathon on Saturday, 16 February. These girls have been attending beginner swimming and intermediate swimming with Mrs Eckhardt and Mrs Davidson. They have worked very hard and were able to showcase how much their swimming skills have progressed in the swimathon. They were spoilt with goodie bags and lunch which was well deserved. Congratulations must go to all our beginner swimmers who have been very brave to learn a daunting life skill and who have all done so well.
Through the Old Mutual Water Polo Prestige Cup together with their learn to swim programme, Old Mutual has sponsored each school R10 000 to use towards a learn to swim programme. We are very excited to be able to use this to improve our beginner swimming and ensure that more girls learn this important life skill.
