Dear parents,

Would you still send your kids to continue learning swimming in view of the recent corona-virus outbreak? :o

yes:
  • swimming pools and related places are chlorinated and extra disinfected - surely more safe than any other place where children interact together, and for what we know so far the possible infection route is more likely to happen by contact transmission rather than through the air.
  • children seem more immune to this virus comparing to adults

Yes with some hesitancy.

You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

Not for now. We have stopped our child's lessons temporarily out of an abundance of caution.

Our rugrat has resumed her swim lessons. It's a better experience now with the SD measures.

Everyone's so happy now that pools are all open.. I see swimming instructors wearing masks while teaching in the pool.

I saw a Swimming instructor in our pool, handling kids without any precautions. Not very comfortable with that.

He’s probably working the circuit of other condos too...
