Quotations

Zelah Dickerson, Swim School Co-ordinator at Riverside Leisure Centre, comments:

William really deserves this award. He has worked really hard this term and is so enthusiastic in every lesson. He always wants to learn and attacks every challenge, making him a stand-out pupil! We hope that the free term of swimming lessons that he has won inspire him to continue to develop his water skills over the next term and long into the future.
