Learn to Swim
From 2015 we will be running a comprehensive learn to swim programme in co-operation with the Physical Education department at SCIS Pudong. This will allow all of our kids access to regular swimming instruction throughout the year and will help them to gain internationally recognized certification levels in swimming.
Our swimming structure will be two blocks of approximately 5 weeks twice per year for lower school, and a 4-6 week block for MS and HS as a part of their PE rotation.
Block 1 - August/September
Block 2 - May/June
Each block will be taught collaboratively by a swimming professional from the pool and your child's PE teacher. The curriculum being followed at each grade level is listed below:
American Red Cross Level Charts can be found below as with the Semester plans.
For middle and high school there will be blocks as a part of the normal rotation of their physical education lessons. The blocks are between 3 and 6 weeks in duration and cover core skills in swimming, aquatics and lifesaving. The syllabus can be found below.
High School: Semester 1
Middle School: Semester 2 (2 blocks)
