Aquatics is an integral part of the school PE curriculum. Pupils will get the opportunity to develop swimming competence under the professional guidance of swimming coaches in local swimming pools.

The strand units of the Aquatics curriculum include:

  • Hygiene
  • Water safety
  • Entry to and exit from the water
  • Buoyancy and propulsion
  • Stroke development
  • Water-based ball games
  • Understanding and appreciation of aquatics

The aquatics curriculum recognises that there is more to swimming than learning to swim strokes and competing in swimming competitions. The emphasis is on acquiring a set of fundamental skills, attitudes and understanding before becoming competent in traditional strokes.
