Aquatic (Swimming & Lifesaving) Interest Group (Aquatic IG) was formed in 2004 with a mere six members. The team now has more than six times this number, along with more achievements under our belts despite being new to the competitive swimming and lifesaving arena.
We participated in our first lifesaving competition in 2005 and first swimming competition in 2006. We were the very first champions of the POL-ITE Swimming Invitational Games, and one of the top achievers in the sport of lifesaving among teams from other institutions. Some of us have even represented the Singapore national team.
Aquatic IG actively gives back to the community by organising free events such as the RP Splash and the RP Youth Lifesaving Funfest, which at the same time allow us to promote our sport to interested youths as well as members of the public. Such events also serve as good event management and leadership building experiences for us.
