As we are now over halfway through the term it’s a good time to update you on what’s happening in the next couple of terms. Firstly I would like to thank you all for your support to Minnows Swim School and your commitment to bringing children to swimming lessons especially on the colder days!
Both Vicki and Maree inform me that your children have made some amazing progress with their swimming over the term; they both bring so much enthusiasm and energy to Minnows.
HEALTH & SAFETY
Minnows Swim School is committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of any individual directly involved with the swim school. We will, so far as reasonably practicable, take all steps necessary to ensure the health, safety and welfare of its teachers, pupils and other persons in the pool area. As parents please support us by ensuring that your children are behaving in a safe and appropriate manner whilst waiting for their lessons. In particular please note the following:
• Children are not to climb or hang off structures in or around the pool, including roof supports and fencing
• No running around the poolside
• Children are not to be close to the poolside without a teacher’s supervision
• Teachers are only responsible for your children while children are participating in a lesson – children are your responsibility while they are waiting.
There is a full set of health and safety rules and a behavioural policy on display at the pool for parents to read. If at any time you as parents have concerns regarding the health and safety of any person at Minnows Swim School please contact myself ASAP.
BOOKINGS FOR TERM 4
Term 4 is often our busiest term of the year with a big increase to our role; therefore spaces are very limited. All children who are currently enrolled in lessons during term 2 will get first priority on spaces in term 4, spaces will then be offered to children who were swimming in term 1, then all children who are currently on our waitlist.
Please note that if your children were in a class in term 1 they may not automatically return to that class; their space may have since been filled or the children who have remained in that class may have progressed onto a higher level.
Our primary aim is to place children in classes that are specific to their swimming level.
Fees for term 2 are now overdue, pleases pay prompt, if you have any queries regarding fees please contact me ASAP.
Remember to wrap up warm while you’re waiting;bring your blanket, hot water bottle, thermos and anything else that helps to make the wait easier!
