” The feedback we have since received has been very positive and the students said they learned so many new skills! I have attached some photos for you of the day. Thanks again for being flexible with the numbers – it was really appreciated!” – Estelle

“Also, could you pass on our sincere thanks to Hayden and the gang for an absolutely fantastic job in engaging our students and patiently organising and instructing them. They did a brilliant job. Speaking to the other teachers, we all felt that we learned a lot from this activity. We learned how much of a cultural barrier there is for our students. Many told me they had never been in the water before, or that they didn’t know it was free to swim at Southbank, so just to break down those barriers was great. Some didn’t come dressed appropriately, but eventually got in the water anyway when they saw the others participate. Many who didn’t swim this time have said they would like to return and they would participate next time now that they know what it is all about.” – Lindasy
