Swimming
Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.
John Maxwell

The school's racing swim team is called the KLASS Torpedoes, comprising of students from Year 2 to Year 13. We have approximately 140 swimmers in the squad who train at least twice a week before and after school.

We compete in both national and international meets. These include state meets in Malaysia, national inter-club championships and inter-school competitions, both at home and overseas as part of SEASAC, ISAC and FOBISIA.  In addition we travel to Bangkok and Phuket every year for international school swim competitions.  Our top swimmers also compete for the Malaysian National Age Groups (an impressive 7 swimmers qualified this year) and in FINA meets on the global stage.

Two KLASS Torpedoes have achieved scholarships to UK independent schools in recent years as a result of their outstanding swimming skills. Ben Proud, who recently left Alice Smith to train in the UK is the current British record holder for 50m Butterfly and the fastest 18 year old in the world in this event. He is now in training for the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

Time trials to join the Torpedoes are held at the beginning of every term and, if successful, students will be placed in a training group based on their times for freestyle and individual medley events. We also run a Junior Torpedoes training session for Years 2 and 3 and developmental swimming and water polo clubs after school.

Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.
