Newsletter Term 4 2019

A very warm welcome to all our new families, and to all our previously enrolled families. We are enjoying Term 4 with our students and love to see their progress in the pool.


New Staff

You may already have met the newest additions to our Swim School family.

Sam started with us in Term 3 and is teaching Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday
and Sunday afternoons.

We’d also like to welcome Lyn to the team. Lyn has been attending our
Mums and Bubs class for the past year and she has loved every minute of it.

She has now become a swimming teacher. Lyn will be working on Tuesday
and Friday mornings for now.

Drowning Prevention

If you have a child who is not yet safe in water, please consider enrolling them into our Drowning Prevention or Survival Swim programs.

Our biggest concern is that children learn to love water during our lessons but learning how to survive in it can take several years in group classes.

Here are the main differences between the two programs:


Survival Swim Drowning Prevention

What to expect

Children learn to swim and float within weeks. Some children enjoy their lessons, most babies and toddlers don’t but they still love to swim outside of lesson time. Children learn to swim and float over the course of several consecutive terms. The lessons involve some playing and trying to keep the student happy.
Age Groups Usually 6 months to 6 years but we would never turn away an older child who needed to learn. 3 years and up
Number of Lessons 2 to 5 a week, usually 20 to 30 in total, we can start any time and finish when the child is done. 1 or 2 lessons a week enrolled by Term.
Cost $800 until your child can demonstrate all the skills relevant to their age group. Approximately $200 per term per day, can take several terms before your child is truly safe.

(If you did not receive a notification about Parking through our App recently, please ensure you have downloaded the App and have Notifications enabled.)

One of our neighbours has not been too happy that they don’t always have parking for their own staff and visitors. Please avoid parking in any bays marked “Reserved Parking Unit 1”. All others are okay at this time. There is also parking on one side of Whyalla Street. Any issues, please let us know.

In order to be eligible for a makeup we must receive a minimum of 3 hours’ notice prior to your scheduled lesson. If your child is sick and unfit for lessons, or if you will be away on holiday, please use the Customer Portal to notify us of your absence. You can also email or phone the swim school any time on 61073699. Just leave a message any time of the day or night if no one answers.

Please remember we cannot guarantee makeups though we will do our best to ensure every family gets the lessons paid for. Makeup lessons are valid for 6 months and can be used for our term swimming or VAC swim program, subject to availability. Makeups to be used during the term can be booked at your convenience through the Customer Portal. Any problems, just ask the Receptionist on duty.

Our App & Customer Portal

Swim School App:

The App is used sparingly (we won’t spam you!) for short, important messages that need to go to every family, for example reminders of Term dates. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, search “Waterwise Swim School” in itunes App Store or Google Play. Please make sure you have notifications enabled!

Customer Portal:

The Customer Portal is where you can check all your enrolment details, notify us of an absence (so long as it is more than 3 hours before your scheduled lesson time), and where you can book makeups. There is a tab linking to the Customer Portal in the App, or you can use the link below:
