Swimming

Overview

Swimming has always been synonymous with ACS. Learning how to swim not only equips our pupils with a survival skill, it helps to inculcate intrinsic qualities such as honour, courage and determination in the pupils.

The Swimming CCA is open to Pri.2 to Pri.6 pupils who are keen in not only learning how to swim but have the competitive spirit as well. Training is twice / thrice a week for competitive swimmers and once a week for beginners.

Pupils can participate in the school's Annual Swimming Championships and the better swimmers are selected to represent the school at the National Primary Schools Swimming Championships.

Programme / Activities

Aquafest event (6th Sept 2017 )

 

Aquafest is an exciting occasion, full of fun-filled water games, prizes and yummy food! It will serve as an excellent opportunity for all swimmers to have fun and to get to know fellow members.

The objectives are for all swimmers to apply the swim skills they have learnt, have fun and to improve team camaraderie
