Lily just finished up two weeks in beginning swimming at our community pool. I had hoped by the end of the class she’d be able to float, but alas, it was not to be. She refuses to attempt anything that involves having her feet off the floor of the pool unless she is being held by someone. As you can imagine, she did not pass the swimming test at the end of the session to move on to the next training level. Check out the awesome “certificate of completion” she got.
“Lily has completed Learn-to-Swim Level 1″ “sign up for Level 1″. Completing a level implies moving on to the next level. That’s the most sneaky way to say “Your daughter failed swimming” I’ve ever seen. If she “completed” it, she should be in “Level 2″. Considering she failed it, a certificate of completion is ridiculous. All she “completed” was two weeks of swimming, and I’m not so sure that deserves a certificate. A report card? Maybe, but a piece of paper that says “Congratulations”? No.
“Congratulations! You didn’t learn how to swim!”
That’s how I read it.
