swimming5At The Grove we are lucky enough to have our own large pool, and swimming lessons are a hugely anticipated part of the week for all pupils.

A professional coach assists the Grade R to Grade 3 swimmers, getting in the water with the swimmers and concentrating on stroke correction. We place great emphasis on being able to swim and general water safety.

Further up the grades there is also input on stroke correction but more emphasis is placed on distance and fitness.

The swimming team participates twice a year in an Inter-Schools gala hosted by a different school each year.

The highlight of the swimming calendar has to be the Inter-house Gala.  It is held in the first term and everyone gets a chance to participate. We try our best to accommodate all levels of swimming – even including a teachers vs pupils race.
