Swimming is a life skill since it helps build competence and confidence in an individual. Apart from being a life skill, it is an excellent form of physical exercise as it is a non-impact activity and caters for a wide variety of skill levels. It is a skill that opens the doors to a number of other sports and may one day save your life.
In ORA, we are incredibly blessed to have our own swimming pool in the compound which was commissioned in May 2017. Swimming is taught as a lesson during the school terms as long as the weather is favorable. Teaching starts from Play group through to class 8 and it is taught by a professionally trained life-guard.
It is a great achievement for us to see pupils from play group who are initially scared to get into the water at the beginning of lessons, progress through to confident, able swimmers by the time they leave School.
During the school terms, only students are allowed to come and swim.
We welcome the rest of our community over the holidays for a fee. While here over the holidays, you also get to enjoy a simple lunch and soft drinks as you and your families swim.
