Pool’s open and swimming lessons start again!

At Novaschool Sunland International we have a beautiful swimming pool of 25 meters surrounded by hedges and sun pipes, equipped with showers and shade.

Swimming is one of the most complete sports at the psychomotor and cognitive-affective level: it is recommended by specialists as an enriching activity for physical, psychic and affective development.

Lessons include games and exercises as a team, as a couple and individuals, focusing on acquiring the technique of the different styles. Thanks to the educational swimming project we get our students to have a good base of movement improving their water skills and competencies.

Swimming allows pupils to improve their cardio-respiratory abilities, promote their postural alignment and benefit muscle coordination. In this way, they develop sensory and psychomotor abilities to gain more strength in the muscles. In addition, moving in a environment that is not common involves creating interpersonal and social relationships.

As during the rest of the year, Covid-19 measures continue to be respected in all PE classes, including the swimming ones. It is essential that students respect the rules, take care of the material and follow the instructions while they are in the changing rooms.

Inside the duly fenced and closed pool space there is a shed to store all the necessary material for the curriculum. In our school it is mandatory to teach swimming lessons from the age of 3 and of course we hire a qualified lifeguard. Multiple studies reveal the many benefits of swimming from an early age.

During summer it is usually used also for Summer Camp. The pool is also used for IGCSE PE exams and students are engraved in their class to formalize the practical part of this subject.
