Aquatics, including swimming, is part of our PE curriculum. Our focus is on building confidence, competence, and water safety awareness. We believe that having fun in the water is just as important as learning different strokes.

Water safety is at the core of our program. From the very beginning, we emphasize the importance of staying safe in and around water. Whether it’s splashing around or mastering strokes, we ensure that children develop vital water safety skills while having a great time.

At St Mary’s, children in 3rd and 4th class embark on a fantastic swimming journey with six-week blocks of swimming lessons each year. It’s an opportunity for children to develop important life skills while enjoying the water to the fullest.
