Children learn to swim in an outdoor pool in footage produced by students at Bognor Regis College of Education under the guidance of Head of Technology John Jones.


Visitors to Bognor Regis Beach are seen paddling in the water, the pier in the distance. During swimming scenes, two young boys and two girls stand in an outdoor pool wearing swimming hats. An instructor supervises the children from the side of the pool as they learn to swim. They dip their faces into the water, and propel themselves to the other side of the pool by pushing off from the side holding floats. Other children are seen swimming confidently.
