Tots get in the swim

September 03 2018

PRE-SCHOOLERS across Kingswood have been celebrating with their families as they 'graduate' from swimming lessons.

The ceremony for three and four-year-olds was offered for the first time by Kingswood Active Lifestyle Centre, marking the occasion when tots finish daytime swimming lessons and look forward to starting after-school lessons in September.

Each child received a medal, certificate and goodie bag at the ceremony, with proud parents, grandparents and swimming teachers present to congratulate them on their success.

Swim manager Tracey Mallett said: "I was thrilled to watch our pre-school swimmers 'graduate' from their lessons as they prepare for the next chapter of their lives at 'big' school. 

"It’s really important to get children confident and comfortable with swimming, so the ceremony presented us with a lovely opportunity to celebrate the children’s achievements with families and friends."
