“This is a big activity which will be added to other activities being practiced at the Seeb Club despite the fact that the school is run by the private sector but we consider ourselves to be partners in this activity. A large number of swimmers will be trained and qualified at the school from which they can join the national swimming teams and take part in international championships.
