Hannah Thears Up the Field

Congratulations go to Hannah Thear (left) who swims at our St. Piran's Venue for winning the Bronze Medal at the Buckinghamshire Schools Cross Country Championships earlier this month.

Hannah completed her 1.7k run in a fantastic time of 7 minutes and 11 seconds, just missing out on the silver medal by a second.

Hannah also competed in the Buckinghamshire Cross Country Championships on the 20th February. This was only her second time running a 3k course. After an outstanding effort she finished in 8th place against many experienced 3k runners.

Hannah's achievements have been just as impressive in the swimming pool. She has been swimming with Seriously Fun at St. Piran's School, Maidenhead for over four years and has progressed through to the Advanced Class.

STA Swimming Teacher Courses

Do you enjoy swimming and feel brave enough to become a swimming teacher?

Seriously Fun are holding an STA Full Swimming Teacher Course from the 5th to 11th April 2010, in High Wycombe.

Teaching babies, children or adults to swim is such a rewarding job, knowing that you have passed on a life saving skill. Another big plus to becoming a swimming teacher is that most swim schools will run on a term time basis so you have the flexibility to work around your own lives and routines.
