Swimming coach, Kieran Chan said at the beginning lessons they had almost full numbers.
But the numbers dropped off with the increasing Covid-19 cases on Rarotonga.
Chan said in one of the lessons, they only had 26 students in attendance when it normally has 60.
However, he said disjointed lessons would not put the children behind.
“The main thing is them getting the comfort in the water and gaining that confidence from knowing certain strokes,” Chan said.
“They don’t have to know everything; they don’t have to be absolutely 100 per cent perfect.
“Just being able to have that knowledge under them and the capability to exercise is what’s important.” Chan said everyone was always having fun at the lessons.
