The year 2020 threw a huge curve ball into our swimming curriculum. We had to close from March 2020 until October 2020 and we reopened on October 13, 2020. After evaluating our situation we decided to postpone swimming lessons for Philippi Childrens' Centre until the New Year.
We went through a COVID19 accreditation process with Swim South Africa in the last term to operate during the pandemic.
Private lessons were started at the facility in the last term of 2020 in order to recover from the impact of being closed for seven months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many children and adults from previously disadvantaged communities were taught at discounted rates for the last three months of the year.
Swimming lessons will commence for Philippi Children Centres' Grade Rs in February 2021 and Pre- Grade Rs in March 2021. We are phasing in to eliminate any unforeseen scenarios.
These are unprecedented times that we are livening in, yet we are excited to teach Philippi Children Centres' learners, as learning to swim may save their lives.
