UCT Sports Administration and Recreation has launched Learn to Swim, a programme to teach students some basic swimming skills.
Held in the remodelled swimming pool alongside the UCT health centre, lessons began on 23 February and will run until the end of April.
Lessons are run by Swimming South Africa-accredited instructor, Deanne Deary, with five learners per class.
Because the course is subsidised, the half-hour lessons cost only R20 each.
It is recommended that students attend at least eight lessons to benefit from the programme.
As space is limited, the programme is open to UCT students only.
Seen here at her first swimming lesson is Samantha Williams, one of the star pupils on the programme's first day.
