Torpedo partnered with Singapore Sports Hub to carry out the Aquatics Holiday Camp from the 6th to 20th of June. The camp provided students the chance to sharpen their skills in either swimming, diving or artistic swimming. Additionally, they were given the opportunity and flexibility to attempt the other sports and learn the basics from our budding coaches!

Certificates were handed out to each participant to commemorate their participation and effort throughout the programme. We look forward to introducing more similar camps to further expose new and present students to the aquatic sports offered!
