St Patrick’s De La Salle Swimming Lessons

Every year our school attends swimming lessons in ‘The Watershed’ swimming pool in Kilkenny. All pupils from second class to sixth get the chance to partake in these lessons. Each class completes a block of eight lessons and the pupils are trained at their own level by swimming instructors. The pupils travel to and from school by either getting a bus or walking and are supervised at all times. At the end of the year some of the pupils also compete in the annual swimming gala also held in the ‘Watershed’.
