Learn to Swim
The Bunya pool is heated to a lovely 32 degrees and is partially shaded. 12.5m x 4m it's ideal for Learn to Swim and for School aged stroke development. It's a lovely, quiet shaded place with room to play before and after a lesson or for older children to play while they wait for their younger siblings to finish their class. In this pool we teach classes of 4-5 swimmers, only one class at a time. Our programs are designed to be a lot of fun while we're quite cleverly teaching your child water safety and swimming.

What are your swimming terms?
We swim from September to December and January to May.
We have three weeks off at Christmas and one week off at Easter. June, July, August we are closed for winter.
We don't tend to use goggles until children turn 3 unless we think it will improve their swimming lessons. At 3 we introduce the idea of goggles as the swimmers technique begins to become a little more mature and we're teaching face down float and correct body position. We have plenty of goggles swimmers can borrow for lessons.
Each child swimming under 3 years who have not yet been fully toilet trained at home are required to swim with a swimming nappy - cloth or disposable is your choice.

Children crying in our pool is not new to us. Crying isn't naughty and children's fear is just as real as ours and needs to be treated with respect.
Our teaching philosophy is to build water safety, water independence and emerging stroke first and then to teach a stroke that doesn't require correction.
71% of the world is water, children are 100% curious. Before you begin teaching your children to swim this is a lesson that may save their life.
