On the 25th April, the National Pool at Tal Qroqq hosted the Annual Swim Meets for students attending State, Church and Independent Primary Schools. This has been the culmination of a year during which students have experienced training sessions to improve their ability in basic swimming skills.
The swimming programme for schools offered by SportMalta at Tal Qroqq National Pool, gives the opportunity to students to experience a sport which is not accessible in schools thus encouraging potentially talented students to develop their skills and pursue swimming at higher levels.
Participating schools were: St Paul’s Bay, Verdala International School, Chiswick School, Paola B, Zejtun, Xaghjra, San Lawrenz Gozo and Rabat Gozo.
Students took part in events which measured their skills in the freestyle, back and breast stroke. Assisted events were also included to encourage participation and cater for students of all abilities.
This event was sponsored by Go & Fun.
