You may recall the recent mail-out about swimming opportunities available to our pupils.
Jamie Merchant’s family took advantage of this opportunity and below is a transcript of their email to the school about how it went:
You recently sent home a letter (to parents of Westhaven children) about a swimming session run by Dave White the Paralympic swimming coach at Hutton Moor.
Just wanted to give you some feedback:
I took Jamie along for the swimming session- there were 2 other boys 1 from Somerset (MIllfield :)) and 1 from Devon. Jamie did some swimming as asked, and I talked with a couple of researchers.
Dave White then “signposted” Jamie to a Para swimming session run on a Sunday (5-6pm) at Hengrove swimming pool in Bristol. It is run by Bristol Aquatics:
“City of Bristol aquatics is a huge club that includes swimming, synchro,
water polo and para swimming. The para swimming has been running
around a year and we have a small group of children aged 9 – 13, plus a
couple of young adults. The clubs focus is to develop skills and aim for
classification and competitive swimming. It costs £16 per month.”
So thank you for sending out the information- we hope that Jamie will start swimming regularly.
Thought you might like the feedback.
