Getting on swimmingly at King’s course

First published in News

A TOTAL of 20 children have taken part in a week’s survival course for those who had reached the ASA Stage Five level of swimming competence at King’s College swimming pool, Taunton.

The course was run by Mary-Jo Shepherd, a nationally-qualified ASA Level 2 coach, who was impressed with how hard the children worked and the standard they reached.

The children worked over five consecutive mornings to a programme which involved swimming fully clothed and also learned a basic rescue from water on to the land and how to deal with the trauma.

Pictured are – back row (from left): assistant teacher Elisabeth Willis, coach Mary-Jo Shepherd, Jack Masters and Lucy Renville; second row, Holly Brooks, William Taylor, Millie Masters and Oscan Wade; third row: Eleanor Rennville, Seren Jones, Leelia Cosens, Cameron Bennett and James Whitehead; front row: Lily Bramston, Isla Catto, Jemima Anstee, Anya Ward, Lexi Wallace and Ruby George; seated: Fred Walburn, James Brooks and Cameron Wallace
