Pre-school water safety presentations

Ellyse, our Pre-School Program Coordinator, and Erika are visiting pre-schools in our local community to teach children about the importance of water safety and the significance of learning how to swim at a very early age. » Read More

Ellyse and Erika have over 15 years’ experience teaching children how to swim. 

The free water safety presentations are conducted on weekday mornings at local pre-schools. The presentations run for approximately 15 to 20 minutes with an educational and dynamic structure to ensure the students remember the key fundamentals to be safer in and around the water. 

If you would like your child’s pre-school to be involved, please contact Ellyse.

Winter promotion

Congratulations to all students who picked up an additional lesson over the last couple of months as part of our Winter Promotion! » Read More

We hope your children are enjoying their swimming and we encourage you to continue your children swimming as much as possible to ensure they are prepared for the warmer months!  

At Knox Grammar Learn to Swim, our focus is on teaching correct technique, and introducing our students to all four competitive strokes as early as possible. 

By keeping the distance short, your children are able to practise and maintain their technique for the entire lap, ensuring they are developing good skills. This means they will not get as tired and then do not practise in a fatigued state. Swimming longer distances with improper technique is extremely tiring, leading to overall poor performance.

The Winter Promotion is only valid until the end of August 2015! Any child still enrolled under the promotion, will automatically roll over to a regular lesson price. If you do not wish to continue an additional lesson, please ensure you complete a cancellation form and return it to the centre, no later than 24 August 2015.
