Swimming at JGA
Each week the pupils at Jonathan Gloag Academy have one lesson of swimming. KG1 through to Class 8 have lessons which are 40 minutes in duration. The school swimming lessons follow a 'Learn to Swim' Program. Our pupils participate in an annual School Inter-houses Swimming Gala. Pupils showing potential will be invited to join the Jonathan Gloag School Swim Team. The School Swim Team competes against other Schools in Nairobi Swimming Association (NASA) competitions.
