"Council defends cuts in funding for swimming lessons"
Friday, 29 July 2016 By Cambrian News reporter in Other News
CUTS to funding for school swimming lessons have been defended by Ceredigion County Council chiefs.
It follows strong criticism of the local authority’s plans to find savings of around £88,000 from the budgets for swimming pool provision.
They would mean the numbers of primary school children receiving funded swimming lessons slashed by one-third and paid lessons for secondary school pupils ditched altogether.
Aberaeron swimming pool manager Martine Branford has suggested the budgetary cuts would put the lives of local children at risk.
But in a statement, County Hall said that, despite a reduction in centrally-funded swimming lessons for primary and secondary schools, primary school pupils in Ceredigion would still be provided with more than the Swim Wales recommended minimum of 26 hours of swimming instruction throughout a pupil’s primary education.
THE ABOVE IS FROM AN ARTICLE IN THE CAMBRIAN NEWS.
I think that it is vital that school swimming lessons are provided, as being able to swim is a very important life skill. Being able to swim becomes even more important when living in coastal areas such as that around Aberaeron. Any money raised to keep these services in available Aberaeron would be brilliant.
