    • Swimming is not just a fun and enjoyable activity, it also offers numerous health benefits. Asa low-impact exercise, swimming increases metabolism, builds muscular strength, and improves immunity. lt exercises the lungs, helps maintain fitness, burns calories, and aids in weight reduction. Moreover, swimming engages and tones all the body's muscles, making it a truly holistic physical activity.


      We will be launching our highly anticipated Yew Wah International Swimming Programme (YWISP). The YWISP aims to provide a comprehensive and progressive aquatic pathway for learners of all ages, allowing them to develop their swimming skills from their first aquatic experiences to be coming safe and proficient swimmers. Our school swimming lessons are designed to teach children the fundamentals of swimming in a safe and supportive environment. Our experienced instructors will work closely with your child to develop their swimming skills while ensuring they have fun in the process.



      The YWISP consists of seven series, each comprising several levels. These series are carefully designed to build upon the knowledge and skill development of the participants, while also rewarding their achievements through a range of exciting swim level swim caps and certificates.



      Mr Adam Porter, our PE teacher in charge of ISP Swimming Programme, said, learning to swim at an early age is crucial as it equips children with a lifelong skill. lt instils confidence and comfort in the water, ensuring their safety in case of emergencies. Unfortunately, drowning remains a leading cause of death among children aged 1 to 14. We consider swimming not only a vital life skill but also a sport that can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of age or ability. Additionally, swimming is an excellent stress-reliever and helps maintain a healthy heart rate.



      To ensure a structured and effective learning experience, we have implemented a complete restructuring of our swimming lessons. Our approach incorporates a combination of Knowledge and skill-based learning, as we as new assessment criteria. children will be assessed twice in an academic year, at the end of each semester. lf they meet all the assessment criteria for a particular level, they will be awarded a certificate of achievement. To ensure a consistent learning experience, it is important for children to attend a minimum of 15 out of 19 swimming lessons in a semester. This attendance requirement is necessary to allow for proper assessment and progression. Failure to meet this requirement may result in the inability to be assessed at that stage and hinder progress.
