On the second day of our school this term we were asked to bring our togs for swimming lessons. The best part was that Swim Magic Swim School, Glen Innes provided us with 3 lovely swimming instructors for 3 weeks ie. for Years 3-8 children.
They divided us into 2 levels and taught few techniques so that we can improve out swimming techniques. It was really cool as we also had fun games (as you can see below) to play on the last day with the instructors.
