These last few weeks alongside Autahi, we have loved our Friday swimming sessions at the Kilburnie pools. We use lots of Grit when learning how to swim, making sure to not give up when it is tricky and telling ourselves things such as “keep trying” and “you can do it!”
Swimming has also been a great opportunity to show Character Strengths such as Respect and Honesty. We show these to our peers, swimming instructors, teachers and parent support.
It has been a pleasure talking to our tamariki and picking up an increased confidence in their swimming abilities.
