Third graders receive swim diploma

The City of The Hague offers all the schools of their municipality free swimming lessons for their three graders (equivalent to our Primary School grade 3). This offers a great opportunity considering the fact that many beautiful North Sea beaches are just around the corner, and forms a perfect reason for learning to swim at a young age and acquire the A-diploma early on. The students train to swim with their clothes on and learn different techniques to keep their heads above water as long as possible. Part of the practice for this diploma includes diving fully clothed. Last Friday our grade three took a cold plunge to qualify for this diploma. The DISDH congratulates all of you on this great achievement!
