CAN I SWIM OR STAY IN THE POOL AFTER MY LESSON?

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT LEVEL MY CHILD IS?

At the time of enrolling, you nominate a level following the critia listed and the instructor will make a complete assessment during the first lesson. If the instructor feels they need to be moved to another level they will communicate with you as to which class suits you best. Their progress will then be closely monitored to ensure they progress with children of a similar ability.

I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT WHAT’S BEING TAUGHT TO MY CHILD, WHO DO I TALK TO?

If you have a question about your child’s lesson pleased speak with the instructor after the class being mindful of the time they have between lessons. You can also contact the swim school through our email or Facebook page.

WHY DO YOU BREAK FOR SO LONG OVER CHRISTMAS?

Our lessons break for the Christmas and New Year period and this break is then extended through the VICSWIM program so the Pyramid Hill Public Swimming Pool and it’s teachers can be utilised for the VICSWIM program.

DO YOU OWN THE SWIMMING POOL?

The Pyramid Hill Public Swimming Pool is owner and by the Loddon Shire Council and both the council and the Pyramid Hill Swimming Pool Committee look after the up keep of the pool.
