St Thomas doubts value of Superkids

I am not your teacher. Because you have drunk, you have become intoxicated from the bubbling spring that I have tended. 
- 13, words to Thomas

Superkids, the swimming club that until recently operated out of St Thomas the Apostle school in Nunhead, has been told to find another swimming pool. Brockley parent Helen has asked us to plug Superkids' campaign to stay put. They write:

Over the last 8 years, we have taught hundreds of children how to swim at St Thomas'. Sadly, earlier this month we were told that we were to be evicted by St Thomas' school because of their wish to use the pool to teach their own pupils, and because "we do nothing for the community".

This is simply not true. Superkids has a loyal customer base & we wish to continue running our business, meeting the needs of families in the local area. We currently have 140 swimmers at St Thomas & another 42 children on the waiting list. Out of these, 106 children live locally - in the postcodes SE14, 15 & 16 with 33 in the SE22 & 23 postcode & 19 in SE4. We're not asking for anyone's charity. We understand the need for the school to teach their own pupils, but all we ask is that we are able to continue using St Thomas' pool for a mere 6.5 hours per week - and continue teaching this important skill to local children. Please spare us a few minutes to support us, by joining our campaign.
