Swimming Award Scheme starts January 2011

In swimming lessons during the second semester all students from EC1 to Grade 5 will be working towards a swimming award. The award is based on the ‘National Plan for Swimming’ from the UK. The awards include swimming technique, distance and speed as well and water skills such as floating, diving, jumping and sculling. There are 12 levels so all children will be challenged at their own ability. At the end of the term we will test everyone and each child will receive a certificate. We are sure that the students will really enjoy this new idea and will be motivated to practice and improve.

Swim Squad in Action at HOPAC

Monday 4th October saw our swimmers travel north to Haven of Peace Academy. The squads had been training hard for the last few weeks and were excited about their first gala of the year. Resplendent in new uniforms, our swimmers did IST and themselves proud, with some great performances. Adil Bharmal set new school records in the Individual Medley and 50m Backstroke. Monique Corriea also broke the Grade 5 girls’ record for 50m backstroke. Talin Stengel underlined her potential with new records in the 25m Butterfly and 25m Freestyle.  Well done to coaches Jessica Albrent and Lara Nikitas, and all the children. All swimmers will receive certificates with their times on for each race. Personal improvement is the goal for all our swimmers during the year. Below are some photos from the gala:

Take your marks!

  

Swimming is an extremely popular extra-curricular activity at IST!

To cater for the large number of children and wide range of abilities we now have four levels of swimming in our program;

  • Beginners Swimming
  • Stroke Improvement
  • Development Squad
  • Swim Squad

Our two squads take part regularly in galas with other schools from Dar es Salaam. The biggest gala of the year is the Moshi/Arusha gala, when teams from many international schools around Tanzania get together. The venue alternates between IST and ISM Moshi, with IST due to host in May 2011.

See the “Forthcoming Events” section of the IST ES PE Website for gala dates.
