Swimming Galas 2012 K2, Year 1 and 2

K2, Year 1 and Year 2 Swimmers Hit the Pool Looking Cool!


What a thrilling week it was recently for all of our risk taking K2, YR1 and YR2 students!  For the past few weeks our students had been preparing themselves for the highly anticipated Swimming Gala’s by practicing hard for their fun and exciting events. These events ranged from the wonderfully named Underwater Obstacle Odyssey, Stepping Stone Bonanza, Kick Board Kicking and Stroke Technique for our K2 classes, to a greater variety of ability related individual and relay events in Year 1 and Year 2. 400 of our younger children show cased their water skills and swam in front of a supportive gallery of friends and family whose cheers could be heard throughout the Primary School and beyond! All of our young swimmers were working hard in a range of different stroke techniques and water based fun activities. The emphasis of our Patana Swimming Gala’s is always to foster enjoyment and building the pupils self-confidence in the water. In Thailand we are surrounded by water which can be great fun but also a great danger if we do not respect it. At Patana our focus and aim is to reinforce in our students through fun learning games and by developing water confidence, many important water safety and life skills.

Well done and thank you to all of the swim team for their work in preparing the children throughout the year, all staff that helped out on the gala days and to the parents who came along to support.

Finally a huge thank you to our Year 5 students who helped with the K2 Galas and congratulations to all of our K2, Year 1 and Year 2 children for their magnificent effort and energy in the pool on their Gala days.
