Newsletter – Term 2 2014

Term 2 Tues 22 Apr – Sat 28 June
Term 3 Mon 14 Jul- Sat 20 Sept
Term 4 Mon 6 Oct – Sat 20 Dec

Welcome back to our returning students and welcome to our new families. I hope everyone had a great break over the holidays. Thank you to everyone for spreading the good word about us, this term we are welcoming many new families into our classes due to word of mouth.


Four levels of safety measures that must be applied
together and at all times in and around any aquatic

  • Be Aware – Don’t let kids out of your sight 
  • Be Secure – Keep fences and gates locked up tight 
  • Be Confident – Learn to Swim, and how to get to safety 
  • Be Prepared – Always have a plan in case of emergency

This term we welcome Emma to our teaching team. Emma is one of our mum’s – her children James and Lily swim with us.

We farewell Madi as she heads to Mt Hotham to work for the ski season. She will be returning in term 4. We also farewell Ashlee. We thank her for all she has done for us and we wish her well with her continuing studies.

We will be running a number of shadowing lessons as part of our teacher’s professional development. You may therefore have two teachers in some lessons as we each watch and learn plus provide feedback to each other.

This is part of our continuing commitment to ensuring we have quality and consistency in our teaching and that all lessons continue to be tailored to meet the needs of your child. We are confident that your child will enjoy all the programs and have continued success. Please speak to me if you have further questions.

Please be aware of some changes to rosters.

Fee Payments

At the start of term before your child goes into class you will need to pay their fees. Either by direct debit three days prior to your first class or by cash/cheque at the pool on the day of their first lesson of the term. If your direct debit is within three days of your first class, please bring a copy of your receipt. Unfortunately your child will not be able to swim unless payment is made or an arrangement is made with us prior to the start of term. Please see Kylie to discuss any concerns you may have.
