LIVINGSTON, NJ — British Swim School of The Oranges recently invited the students from Freedom Christian Academy in Orange to participate in an exclusive hour-long "Splashapalooza" event at its Livingston location at 39 W. Northfield Road.

This "Splashapalooza" event was held at the request of Shelley Remaly, principal of Freedom Christian Academy. British Swim School's instructors taught the middle-school-aged kids some basic water safety skills, including back floating and propulsion movement.
 
"It was a PE (physical education) class of a different kind," said Roman Martens, franchise owner of the British Swim School of the Oranges. "Everyone had a great time."

The six participating students were beginners, and they were taught by two instructors, he added.
