Kunama 1960


Life Saving, 1959


On December 1st, a Swimming School was started and ran for a fortnight. Years were allotted days and every child had a fortnight of concentrated swimming tuition.

Every girl sat for a Water Safety Certificate and had to pass before she was permitted to go. This was done so as to cut the likelihood of accidents to a minimum.

Non-swimming groups were taught to swim and swimmers taught improvements and given the chance of gaining Life Saving Awards

Elementary Certificates 44
Proficiency Certificates 68
Intermediate Stars 39

Swimming and Diving

Regular swimming classes were held this year with two aims:

(2) To teach the swimmer life saving and water safety.

These lessons proved to he of great value to everyone, and many life saving awards were gained.
