Edinburgh Leisure, with funding from the City of Edinburgh Council, are offering free swimming sessions for primary school children during the school holidays, February 14 to 22, 2015.
WHEC is also providing free swimming for primary school children during the February break. You can find out more information about the swimming at WHEC here.
Children under five can swim for free all year round at every Edinburgh Leisure pool.
Councillor Richard Lewis, the city’s Culture and Sport Convener, said:
We are delighted to be continuing the free swimming programme over the half-term period at every single Edinburgh Leisure swimming pool. We want to make it easier and more accessible for young children in Edinburgh’s communities to keep active during the winter months, and through this programme we will hopefully encourage our younger residents develop a love of swimming.
Edinburgh Leisure Director of Operations Graeme Gardiner said:
We are delighted that the City of Edinburgh Council free swim programme for primary school children is returning to Edinburgh Leisure. It is a great opportunity to make a positive difference to the lives of children in Edinburgh by making it easier for them to be healthy and active during the school holidays.
