Learn to Swim Christmas Closure

After a wonderful year of swimming, Learn to Swim will conclude for the year at the close of business on Friday 19 December 2014, to recommence on Monday 5 January 2015. » Read More

During the closure there will be no learn to swim lessons, including: Aqua-Tots, Learn to Swim Pre-School Levels 1, 2 and 3, Learn to Swim School Age Levels 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, Junior Development Mini Squad, Special Needs and Private Lessons.

As we are closed during this period, Learn to Swim accounts will not be billed; you can spend that money on extra presents! Fees will resume on 28 December; you will be billed, as normal, for January’s lessons.

If you’re lucky enough to be going on holiday outside of the dates that we are closed, please ensure that you notify us of any lessons you’ll miss in accordance with our current make-up policy to avoid any disappointment.

Knox Christmas Pool Party

Knox Aquatic Centre is holding its annual Christmas Pool party on Sunday 7 December 2014. The fun will start at 2pm and run all the way through until 4pm.

Come along to enjoy races, inflatable pool toys, recreational swimming and a special visit from Santa! » Read More

Entry is just $10 per child and includes a hot dog and can of drink. You can purchase your tickets from the Aquatic Centre reception staff in advance or buy tickets on the day for $12 per child!

Starting school next year?

If your child is making the transition and beginning school next year, you will need to move your current morning lesson to an after school or weekend lesson. » Read More

The office staff are very happy to discuss the options with you next time you attend your lesson or, if preferred, we’d love to hear from you by email. Please keep in mind that we are only able to move lesson times no more than seven days’ in advance.

Progression

We do our utmost to ensure that your child is placed in the appropriate level for their ability and ensure that their progress is monitored throughout the month by both the instructor and the supervisor on the pool deck. » Read More

Although we understand that you’re very keen to see your child move up, please do not try to rush them through the system. All children work at a different pace so patience and understanding is very important. If you have any questions about your child's swimming, please don’t hesitate to speak to the morning and afternoon program coordinators.

Adjusting to change

We are extremely pleased to have recently welcomed a host of new teachers to our program. We thank you for your understanding throughout the recent months, during which many of your children will have transitioned to new teachers. » Read More

We do our best at Knox to employ and give opportunities to young people, which occasionally means time off for university exams, placements, travel and eventually their moving on to other industries. Our teachers also work in close contact with children, so it is inevitable that they occasionally get sick – something we’re sure you’re familiar with. It is unfortunately beyond the control of our administration when there is a teacher change and we always do our utmost to maintain consistency as best we can. Again, we thank you for your patience and understanding.

Holiday Intensive Program

With summer well into swing and school swimming carnivals fast approaching, what better way to improve your child’s swimming skills than our Intensive School Holiday Program in January 2015? » Read More

The full holiday program will be available from late November and holiday class bookings will be available from 8 December 2014, so please talk to the staff in the Learn to Swim Office to arrange your booking.

Office closure and Merry Christmas

Over the holiday break there will be limited staff monitoring the office, so please email learntoswim@knox.nsw.edu.au with any of your questions or concerns and we will endeavour to reply as soon as possible over this period. » Read More

From all of the Staff at the Knox Aquatic Centre, we thank you for your support throughout 2014; we would like to wish all families a very happy and safe holiday and we are looking forward to seeing you in the New Year!
