Swimming

Here at Sunday’s Well we are very lucky to have weekly lessons on Tuesdays at Leisureworld Churchfield for all children in 1st to 6th class.  

Aquatics is  now a component part of the Physical Education Strand of the Primary School Curriculum. Irish Water Safety has developed a course that incorporates all aspects of the Aquatics Strand – called PAWS (Primary Aquatics Water Safety). At the end of each school year the children complete their Land Paws and Paws exams and progress through the programme each year.  You can find out more about this programme below.

This programme was specially tailored for primary school pupils and is exclusive to schools. Schools now have the opportunity to be part of Irish Water Safety’s fastest growing programme. Teachers have the ability to certify their pupils with buy ritalin and adderall online nationally recognised awards from our programme that is recommended by the Department of Education and Science.

Through PAWS pupils not only learn how to swim they also learn to understand and appreciate the water. They also have fun through the water-based games that are involved in the programme. After completing the PAWS Programme pupils will have the ability to swim, interact with others, and most importantly be responsible around water. As with normal Swimming Lessons children learn how to swim with PAWS but they gain so much more with this programme. Aspects covered in the PAWS Programme range from Water Safety Knowledge to Survival Skills to basic Rescue Skills.

The main aim of PAWS is to significantly reduce the number of our young people lost to drowning each year.
