As part of our facilities here at EtonHouse Thomson, we have a tennis/basketball court, an indoor badminton and multi-purpose hall as well as a swimming pool. These facilities offer further opportunities for our students to engage in a wider range of sporting experiences and to develop different techniques and physical skills.
In collaboration with swimming coaches from Atelier Aquatics, our P.E. specialist at EtonHouse Thomson have designed and developed a swimming programme for our students from the Year 1 to Year 3 classes. The students in these year levels will participate in swimming sessions as a component their P.E. curriculum.
The swimming programme will explore the following techniques and the basics of water safety:
- various ways of floating
- basic movements
- submerging techniques through to front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke independently from 50 to 300 meters.
Swimming is also offered to our Nursery 2 & Kindergarten 1 children (aged 4 and above) as an Extra-Curricular Activity (ECA) and more information can be found on the ECA information booklet.
