Ocean Walker 2018 group
 
This month saw world renowned British swimmer Adam Walker return to Parc Bryn Bach to hold a special open water training session, where he shared insights on his revolutionary new 'Ocean Walker' swimming stroke technique.

Adam is the first British person to swim the ‘Oceans 7’, an incredible feat that consists of swimming the world’s seven toughest sea channels, an accomplishment made all the more impressive by the fact that he is only the fifth person in the world to complete the challenge, and only the second in history to do it on his first attempt.

It was during this challenge that Adam became injured and was advised not to swim anymore, but determined to succeed he set about finding a better way of swimming, which would enable him to carry on, and the Ocean Walker Technique was born.

Susan Mitchell gcse 2018

Last week saw Aneurin Leisure’s Adult Community Learning celebrating successes in their GCSE English and Maths results.

Adult Community Learning achieved a 97% pass rate which shows the amazing commitment and dedication of the learners, many of whom attend evening classes whilst in full-time employment.

Ceri Waters, Partnerships, Funding and Contracts Manager at Aneurin Leisure said of the results; "We are extremely proud of the achievements of our learners and send them heartfelt congratulations and wish them every success in the future. We must also acknowledge the hard work of the teaching staff and the support of the learners' families which all contributes to enabling them to fulfil their aspirations and goals."

Pictured above is Susan Mitchell, who attained an A grade in Higher Tier Maths, and her tutor Ian Howells.

Susan enthused; “I am absolutely thrilled with my results, I never thought at the start I would be able to have achieved an A grade!”

If you would like more information on the new range of courses available this September in Adult Community Learning, you can view and download our 2018/19 brochure at https://aneurinleisure.org.uk/explore/community-education or call us on 01495 355300.
