DCC events went swimmingly

This past weekend, the Deaf Community Center in Phnom Penh celebrated the Lunar New Year – burnt offering included.

While DCC Kampong Cham took advantage of having an experienced swim teacher here, in the form of Sarah (our PACE volunteer).  The Kampong Cham group had a real range of experiences but everyone seemed to learn a little something new.


One of our more advanced swimmers blazing across the pool!


Practicing floating


Proper crawl arms


As she said, CORRECT!


Since about half of the participants have only been studying at DDP for one month, their sign language is limited.  Luckily, Sarah is very skilled at gestures, so the message could get across without formal language.


Racing to run over their teacher.  Swimming in a straight line will be a skill for the next class…
