Diving Board

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Fun Platform.”

The schools I attended in South Africa all had swimming pools. At my primary school we would have training between 7 and 7:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and school would start at 7:45.
(In Sydney schools start at 8:55, it seemed so late when my son started!) On Friday afternoons we would compete against other schools, it was heaps of fun. And it could all be done indepedently, walk to school for training, walk back home after competition. But it seems only a few of the private schools here have the facility of a swimming pool. So the children have to be driven to a pool for swimming training, while the parents sit and wait. I would definitely make it compulsory for every school to have a swimming pool, and allow for weekly swimming training!
