HKIS Aquatics

HKIS Aquatics' mission is to provide a developmentally appropriate swimming program for students at Hong Kong International School. Swim lessons and a variety of aquatics activities are differentiated for level and ability, thus ensuring students experience success, enjoyment, improvement of their skills, and development of their knowledge and understanding of water safety concepts. By providing such learning opportunities, students are encouraged to pursue lifelong fitness and enjoyment.

Aquatics Department (Curricular)

All Lower and Upper Primary students take part in a learn-to-swim program during a scheduled aquatics unit as part of their curricular learning. A dedicated, specially trained team of HKIS swimming instructors and Aquatics Director prepare and deliver this program. Information regarding the Curricular Program and swim levels can be found here.

Aquatics Academy (Co-curricular)

The HKIS Aquatics co-curricular program, called Aquatics Academy, offers Lower Primary, Upper Primary, and Grades 6 and 7 students five programs: Learn To Swim, Learn to Train, Artistic/Synchronized Swimming, Junior Lifeguarding and Water Polo. These take place after school and on Saturdays at the Repulse Bay campus.
