Our Year 3 students greatly enjoyed their intensive Water Safety Program held over the course of five consecutive days at Mill Park Leisure Centre last week. Throughout the program students learned how to be both more confident and safe in the water. At the same time, our students were also engaged in a sunnah sport as taught by our beloved prophet Muhammad (saw).
Narrated Anas bin Malik, may Allah be pleased with him: "The Messenger of Allah, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said to me: 'O my son! If you are capable of (waking up in) the morning and (ending) the evening, while there is nothing of deception in your heart for anything, then do so.' Then he said to me: 'O my son! That is from my Sunnah. Whoever revives my Sunnah then he has loved me. And whoever loved me, he shall be with me in Paradise.'"
Every child felt safe and supported by the help of the professional swimming instructors during their lessons. For some students this was their first time in a swimming pool and it was wonderful to witness how they each progressed every day.
We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude and appreciation to all participating Year 3 students as well as their parents/guardians for washing and preparing the students' swim clothes every night ahead of their next water safety day.
Thanks also go to all teachers and teacher aides who supported this program to make it such a successful one, alhamdulillah.
