Please see flyer attached for details of ‘Aqua Adventure’ classes for children during school holidays at Barrhead Sports Centre and Eastwood High Sports Centre Pool.
Primary 6/7 have their final swimming lesson at Eastwood High School next week. They have been working hard on the front crawl, breast stroke and backstroke. The case of the mysterious missing swimming shorts continues though……
The boys and girls were lucky enough to meet Mark Deans, who is a Scottish Open Water swimmer. He talked to the boys and girls about his time in Australia where he was training for 3 months. He said he preferred it to being in a pool as it was more challenging and exciting. He told the children he even saw a shark during this training!
Mark has a true love for water if he’s not swimming you’ll find him by the sea kite surfing which is his favourite sporting activity (apart from swimming obviously)!
Primary 4/5 are taking part in swimming lessons as part of their PE programme this term. We are working with Mr Reid at Eastwood High and it is a great opportunity for us to visit their fantastic swimming facilities. We have even spotted a few familiar ex-Uplawmoor Primary School faces when the bell goes!
