Swimming certificates

Hello dear children,

I am Sanne your swimming instructor in the Happy’s swimming school and would like to invite you to my swimming course here at the Zauchenseehof. With funny games, mole arms and penguin jumps, I will teach you to swim in an instant. Of course every one of you will be rewarded by me for the participation, depending on the progress, with the Happy Certificate and a Happy Patch or with a swimming badge “Sea horse”.

I am looking forward to a fun and successful time with you.

Your Sanne
