Swimming is a skill for life and there is no time when this skill is more important than in the summer holidays. Our Swim Safe for Summer Campaign seeks to educate young people and parents on the dangers of swimming while on holiday and the preventative measures that can be taken. This month the Wings Team will be delivering assemblies at schools in Twickenham and Richmond doing exactly that.
This summer, Wings Swim School delivered their Swim Safe Summer presentation to over 3,900 students in 13 different schools in Twickenham and Richmond. In addition to this we are proud to have taught 147 children in our FREE swimming lesson week
A Royal Concern
In June 2013 Prince William expressed his concern for the provision of swimming lessons in Britain, as a recent report found a staggering 50% of 7-11 year olds could not swim 25 metres – one length of a standard pool. You can see the report here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-22750472 Furthermore, in 2011 there were 407 drowning related deaths in the UK, 47 of which were children.
Wings to the Rescue!
To combat these alarming statistics we are running free swimming lessons and crash courses throughout the summer holidays which are renowned for significantly improving swimming ability. Our crash courses consist of five 30 minute lessons over five days and are being offered at a discounted rate of £44, that’s 1 lesson free!
