The Aquatics Department’s 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.
All Lower and Upper Primary students take part in a learn-to-swim program during a scheduled aquatics unit as part of the curricular school year. A dedicated, specifically trained team of HKIS swimming instructors and the Aquatics Director prepare and deliver a Learn To Swim program designed to ensure students' water safety and confidence.
