What a succesful week we had in Jamaica training up new swimming teachers and finding lifeguards to join the team. Everybody was so enthusiastic and we cannot wait for the team to expand. We did lots of theory on swim teaching, and then they also joined in all of our practical lessons to get an idea of what is to be expected! We had such fun being back in the water in Treasure Beach and really can't wait to get back in June.

Final logo design
We took our ideas to a friend, Theodore Scaramanga, who very kindly offered to complete the final logo deisgn for us. We spent the evening with him, playing with a few ideas, and different variations to the logo, finally agreeing that the combination of swimming goggles, Jamaican colours and Jamaican flag worked perfectly. After hours of hard work, we are super impressed and very happy with the logo that lovely Theo has designed, Thank you!

Designing a logo
We had dinner with Jake (6) and Joe (5), the two little boys who lost their dad in Treasure Beach. When we told them about our future plans next year, they were very keen to get involved and help us in any way that they could. In particular, they wanted to come and stay with us for the 3 months and help to teach the children to swim underwater. So we set them the task of helping us design our charity logo; they suggested that we should use Jamaican colours and something swimming related, both of which we took into account. Here they are hard at work!
