Swimming Program

Monday, 29 October 2012 01:40

In 2011, Majella Catholic Primary School launched its “Majella Swim Program” with the aim of subsidising the cost of swimming lessons for each student from Year 1 to Year 6.  We were overwhelmed at the generosity shown, much of it from people who didn’t know our school or our students but were moved by the cause.

It’s hard to even begin to describe the joy, excitement and enthusiasm of the kids as they arrived at the pool, many of them for the first time. It’s harder still to convey the pleasure and pride they felt as their skills and confidence grew with every lesson.

The program was equally successful in 2012 with many people and organisations generously sponsoring a child.  The program will continue in 2013 anyone wishing to support a student is asked to contact the school office.
