On Tuesday 29th April Camelford Leisure Centre in partnership with ARENA ran a course for primary school teachers all over Cornwall to give them an insight into how to deliver a swimming lesson following the STA key stage 2 criteria. The course which was designed and delivered by Wayne Jordan-Shilling was well attended with 22 teachers from all over the county. The teachers learnt how to analyse the main three competitive swimming strokes and were given different skills to help develop each stroke. This means the teachers have a greater understanding of the correct way to teach swimming which will ultimately lead to more primary school children reaching the goal of being able to swim 25m by the time they reach secondary school. We already have a second course booked in for later on in the summer term and are also looking into developing a course following the key stage 1 criteria.
