We have some exciting news – the Westmoreland County School System has coordinated with the YMCA and our GHCP Assocation Board to offer water safety instructions at our pool to second graders. Over 90% of the 104 2nd graders in the system will be participating.
Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury; it is a necessity – especially when we are surrounded by water! Click here to read more about the Safety Around Water program.
The program will run at our pool from May 28-June 7. Classes will be in two sessions during school hours; 12:30-1:30 and 1:30-2:30. The county will bus the children to and from the pool. The YMCA provides instructors. And our GHCP Friends of the Pool have recruited volunteer aides to assist on the deck or in the water. (posted 5.28.19)
