Swimming and Positive Health

Water is an essential part of the Kiwi identity and our students spend a lot of time at the beach, fishing off the rocks, sailing, kayaking, swimming and other water activities. Swimming lessons are a great way to teach our students how to stay safe in and around water. 

Research shows that regular exercise has lots of health benefits for children, such as:
  • improving fitness
  • providing an opportunity to socialise
  • increasing concentration
  • improving learning
  • building a stronger heart, bones and healthier muscles
  • encouraging healthy growth and development
  • improving self-esteem
  • improving posture and balance
  • lowering stress
  • encouraging a better night's sleep
