Learn To Swim Lessons Bookings Are Open!

Oct eNews headers (19)

We have some exciting news, learn to swim returned from Friday, 5th November! We will notify you when classes for Mayfield and Wallsend are able to open.

Lessons at Lambton, Mayfield and Wallsend have moved from a term-based system to a perpetual (fortnightly payments) program which not only means more consistent swimming outcomes for your child but also means no more bulk upfront payments!

Under the new perpetual system, classes will continue to run through the school holidays with a small break over Christmas/New Year and during the winter closure. We do not run on Public Holidays and if your lesson is meant to fall on one of these days you will not be charged. Check out our 2021 Swim School Calendar for all our important dates.
