MAKE A SPLASH!
Children in France are entitled to 15 hours of free swimming lessons this summer, an increase of five hours, as part of the savoir nager programme. Run by the Fédération Française, the initiative aims to ensure that all children are safe when swimming or playing in the water. The lessons are available during the summer holidays for children aged between six and 12 years. You can see if your local swimming pool is taking part in the scheme on the Fédération Française website.
