I’m sure you have noticed an ‘expanding’ staff member this term! Yes, Caroline has now out grown her wetsuit and our first Olympus baby will soon arrive! She has now stopped teaching but will be popping into see us before we finish the term. She has completed most awards for the swimmers in her groups & left instructions for her cover teachers to finalise the last few. Please try and come to the last few weeks of swimming if you’re one of Caroline’s swimmers. Additionally, we will of course keep you posted via Facebook and the Website once the Olympus baby arrives! Good luck Caroline! We wish you all the best at this very exciting time! Enjoy these last few weeks putting your feet up and making the most of some ‘me time’ while you can! Brooke will be covering Caroline for these last few weeks of term, she has covered in the afternoons many times & happily has not been frightened off!

Changing rooms: Swimmers should use their designated changing room from the age of 8 unaided. Parents, if you need to assist your child who is younger than 8 please take your little one into the changing room which you would use yourself.
Also, please remember the following: -


In addition, please note the following usual reminders.

Parents, could you ensure that children do not sit on the wall whilst watching siblings swim. Please tie longer hair back or wear a swimming hat. Use the loo and blow noses prior to swimming. Absolutely no running in the changing room areas please. Parents please be aware that you are fully responsible for your children when they are not in lessons. PLEASE arrive on time for lessons. It’s important not to miss the first 5 to 10 minutes of the ‘warm up’ section of a lesson!
