Next Wednesday afternoon will complete the eight weeks of swimming lessons in Mayfield Swimming Pool, started in November. Fifty-two pupils participated from Second Class to Sixth Class. Some First Class and Senior Infants pupils who have brothers in Second to Sixth Class were also allowed to participate. Four swimming instructors were on hand each Wednesday, so that the boys could be coached at their own individual level.
It is proposed to start another eight week session of swimming lessons immediately after the Christmas break. The course costs twenty-five euro, to be paid in advance. Most of the current participants have expressed an interest in continuing on, but there is also room for a few more pupils.
The lessons take place on Wednesday afternoons, starting at 2.00pm. Pupils who are going swimming may stay in the Lunch Room from 1.00-1.30pm under supervision, to convenience parents.
