Welcome back to our returning students and welcome to our new families.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and 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. 

Over the holidays it was bought home to us once again how quickly and easily someone can get out of their depth and into all sorts of trouble and drown.

The number of drowning’s was incredibly sad and the number of rescues and near drowning’s just horrifying.

Too many have lost their lives, almost double the number of last year and the number of rescues by Life Saving Victoria on patrolled beaches has also almost doubled last year’s numbers.

The Swim Australia catch phrase “Arms Reach @ the Beach” is so important and relevant to now.

We are looking for another teacher for Term 2 onwards. If you or anyone you know may be interested please have a chat to us.

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.

Finally as always as we have moved so many students up to after school classes and various kinder changes there are many challenges.
No doubt our start of year will still provide lots of changes.
