The staff of “Baltisches Haus” is extremely pleased to congratulate another group of children that completed the programme on safe behaviour near the water and successfully passed a swimming test. Children from the Balsiai Basic School of Pakruojis district took a training course consisting of eighteen swimming lessons. The intensive training sessions helped to develop physical skills, endurance, coordination, and reaction. In addition to swimming techniques, the children were taught safe behaviour in the water or near bodies of water. This year, 23 primary school pupils from the Balsiai Basic School received certificates for their hard work during swimming lessons and can be proud knowing that they can now swim too.
“Baltisches Haus” started the initiative “Let’s Learn to Swim” in 2014. 46 pupils from this swimming school started a safer summer that year. During the following year, we are proud to acknowledge that all the schoolchildren from Balsiai, including students in their final years, learned to swim.
We are very pleased that we could contribute to the future safety of Lithuanian children and congratulate the little champions of the Balsiai Basic School!
