School hosts successful swim teachers course.

During half term a group of 7 teachers took part in their STA (Beginners) Level 1 Teachers Course at the School run by Bob Steven from Making Waves Swim School. Making Waves Swim School is Bobs family business and he is passionate about getting children into the water and excited about swimming. Bob opened the swim school at the School back in 2007 and since then Making Waves has gone from strength to strength. Bob explained, I have always been passionate about swimming and I have worked on and off as a swimming teacher all my life. Each week Making Waves delivers 3 hours of lessons on a Sunday morning for up to 90 children.

This 4 day course was an opportunity for Bob to pass on his wealth of knowledge to future swim teachers. They were all successful in passing the course and will now be gaining further experience with Making Waves.

Bob said Congratulations to all candidates at Ellesmere College who took part in the course. Making Waves are delighted to announce that we achieved a 100% pass rate! We look forward to helping many more young children to learn to swim in the future.
