Our outdoor pools are heated to 28 degrees. Lessons are held regardless of weather. During electrical storms children will be removed from the water. This time cannot be made up.


Lessons are in the afternoons during the school term and in the mornings on Saturdays and all lessons during the Christmas school holidays.


Make up lessons will be held for children, only in the case of infectious disease, skin or eye infections, or illness in which the doctor states the child cannot swim. Children entitled to have make up lessons must do so at a time convenient to management. 


Our staff are all AUSTSWIM trained swimming instructors. Most of our staff are also trained school teachers.

No goggles or swimming flotational aids are allowed. 

There are no lessons on Sundays.


We are now Providers for the Active Kids Program and can accept Vouchers. The rules for the Active Kids program are that activities must extend over at least an 8 week time period. Our intensive courses do not satisfy this requirement however our maintenance courses in term 1 do, therefore we can accept vouchers for our maintenance courses.


Payment is made at the time of booking.
