On Sunday September 26th the boys from St George’s Boarding House at Regent’s School, led by James Sarginson, hosted a group of children from the Mercy Center. As part of the Regents boarding team’s ongoing commitment to our community partners, James, Link, Jake, David, Edvinas and Chokchai invited the children, whose ages ranged from 2-12, to spend the afternoon on campus and under their guidance learn to swim or to improve their swimming.
James said, “All the children enjoyed themselves and learnt very well. We had a lot of fun with them and hope they will visit us again soon. We split the children into groups of 5. This way it was much easier to run the activities we had set out for them. The children were put in groups based on their ability – those who were unable to swim were encouraged to build their confidence in the water through differing activities whilst the stronger swimmers were taught swim stroke technique.”
