Every student at the College, from Toddler to Senior School has ONE swimming lesson in our heated Olympic 50m pool per week. Under the daily guidance of Coach Will Qian, former Chinese national swimmer, students are coached, following our Learn to Swim programme. This is a step-by-step programme, designed to build confidence and capability, and is a perfect foundation for students to then join the Dulwich College Puxi Swim Squad. Already in 10 weeks, we have seen amazing progress in every students' ability.
Last week, we were delighted to have Head of Aquatics, Billy Pye, and squad members from our sister campus in Pudong training together in our pool. Mr Pye is a highly respected British coach, previously working with British Paralympic swimmers to acheive multiple gold medal successes. Our students benefitted greatly from an intensive 3 hour training session with Billy, focusing on their stroke, kick and dive techniques. Thank you, Billy!
