The Kent School District has created a goldfish-swimming school that was created by its children to teach the basics of the sport to children at the beginning of the school year.
The class, which was developed by Goldfish Swim School of Kent, will be available to all students and parents on April 20.
“I was inspired by my mother who was a professional swimmer, and how she taught the sport in the family,” said Kessy Wigfield, a Kent mother who started the swim school.
“I wanted to give kids the opportunity to learn the sport of swimming so they could take it to the next level.”
The sport of water polo was created in the UK by a young, British swimmer in the 1920s.
So when I saw the children’s story and thought about how this could be done, I knew I had to make it.
“The school is now offering its classes online for those interested to register.”
I am so excited about this, we have been so impressed with the response and we have really had a fantastic response,” said Kayla McBride, the Head of School.”
We are very proud of the way we have approached it, and we hope it can be a successful model for others to follow.
“The children who took part in the class will be able to use the pool for swimming practice and compete against their friends in the water polos.
The first class will start on April 10.”
We hope that with the school, it can inspire other children to want to do the same.”
