Ecole Mondiale World School introduces a fitness program for its students called 'Splash'. Where students swim weekly in class and twice a week after school. Parents support the swimming programme and students swim all year round. They are aware that students must have a letter from home with a reason for not swimming.
Teaching children to swim and encouraging them to swim regularly can have significant benefits for both his health and safety. World studies show that children who swim have better lung development and it is very good for asthmatics as it helps regulate their breathing. Swimming provides a more effective workout than some other activities.
Ecole Mondiale World School acknowledges that their students live in apartments where space is at a premium so green spaces for parks are not always available. Therefore swimming is a great way to exercise all muscles. Mumbai is by the sea, water plays an important part in our lives so children need to respect it and learn to swim. There are so many children drowning in unsuitable water we need to educate them on water safety.
Mr. Finbarr O'Regan, Principal, Ecole Mondiale World School, says, "The students really enjoy swimming, because of swimming children are observed to be more enthusiastic at home which is the added benefit. We at Ecole have noticed that Swimming has improved our children's immunity system. Children who have been swimming regularly have not had a sick day all year. We have a wonderful facility at Ecole and we try our best to ensure the students take advantage of it."
Physical exercise in the water has less strain on the body. With growing children is less pressure on their joints.Ms Jo William, swimming instructor, Ecole Mondiale, says," Swimming is refreshing; it doesn't stress knees ankles of the child as much as other sports. Swimming actually works every muscle of the body." "It's is a different type of exercise and is fun too." adds Ms Jo.
In addition to the health benefits, swimming also taps into the social, emotional & mental development of kids. Children learn the importance of perseverance, sportsmanship, self-discipline and goal-setting. Children develop relationships with teammates and learn the importance of responsibility and teamwork. In addition, it allows kids to socialize with their peers, also improve overall mood, and help combat depression.
