Parkes Shire Aquatic Coordinator, Nikki Thornhill said “The program aims to not only provide swimming instruction, but also to ensure students gain the knowledge, skill and understanding of water safety for all aquatic environments.
“Our program instructors are all accredited with AUSTSWIM/ASCTA and have been screened according to legislative requirements.
They have been chosen based on a combination of their technical knowledge, enthusiasm and the ability to build rapport with their students.”
For the first time, Parkes Aquatic Centre will hold a Learn To Swim enrolment day on Saturday, 19th October from 11am until 2pm.
“The enrolment day is a great opportunity for participants to meet our instructors, sign up to the program, familiarise themselves with the pool facilities, and enjoy a barbeque lunch to raise funds for drought relief,” Nikki added.
For those unable to attend the enrolment day, forms can be downloaded from Council’s website and returned to email@example.com.
A confirmation email will be sent out mid- October with lesson details.
