As you may know by now, every month, we take our kids to the hot springs of Cconoc (one month our special kids, the other our toddlers). We have been doing so for about a year now, and as this was a very new experience for a lot of our kids, we focused on building their confidence while playing in shallow water. However, this time, we were pleased to have the expertise of Mayan Praats, sports student at Howest, who developed a learning plan with exercises to teach the kids to swim.
Thanks to this plan, we are also able to check the kids’ abilities at this point and track their evolution in the following months. The trips made for another two afternoons of fun in the warm water, beneath the hot sun and surrounded by our fantastic volunteers.
