Notes / History Today many Merton schools arrange trips to local swimming pools to teach children valuable life- saving skills and to promote physical fitness. However, during the 1950’s and 60’s few schools could boast their own pool. This picture from 1961 shows pupils from Alfred Mizen school (now Garden Primary) enjoying a dip in their new open-air swimming pool.
