Half Olympic Size Swimming Pool
Outdoor Sports curriculum is an integral part of Delhi Public School Patiala. We at DPS believe that students should build on and embed the physical development and related skills to become more competent, confident and expert in their sporting techniques, and also be able apply the techniques across different sports and physical activities. The children are taught to analyze and understand what makes a performance effective.
Swimming is a discipline that imparts mental and physical prowess to a student’s mind and body, hand-in-hand with the fun associated with it. Keeping this in mind, a half-Olympic sized swimming pool is available for the students along with a Ball & Splash pool for the junior students.
The intent of the pool facility is to teach the students to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 meters, to be able to use a range of strokes effectively and at the same time to imbibe the skills to perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations. All students get to use the pool twice a week, under the watchful eyes of their swimming coach.
The pool facility is equipped with a filtration unit keeping in mind the importance of the pool hygiene. Separate changing and shower facilities are available for boys and girls.
