Get Wet Swimming

Hi Everyone,
A big thank you to Glenn Nott and Stewart Brawley from the Tweed Shire Council for giving The Get Wet Swim Team permission to use the TRAC Murwillumbah Pool on Sundays to give our up and coming stars the opportunity to do some diving practice in the lead up to the Swim Season of School carnivals. This will be a great chance for some of our reluctant champions to improve their confidence getting off the blocks. The Team will be meeting on Sundays at 11.00am. Look forward to seeing all our Squad members then....

GET WET is now Partnered with SPORTING SCHOOLS
Sporting Schools is a $100 million Australian Government initiative designed to help schools to increase children’s participation in sport, and to connect children with community sport.
In partnership with more than 30 National Sporting Organisations (NSOs), Sporting Schools will help to coordinate sporting organisations, coaches and teachers to deliver sport before, during and after school hours.
This is great news for all Schools in the Tweed Valley.
Sporting Schools is Australia’s largest school-based sports participation programme to help children foster a lifelong interest in sport.

HARD TO BELIEVE.….isn’t it? Christmas is nearly upon us once more. Get Wet would like to acknowledge all parents who have entrusted their children to us over the past year for swimming lessons. We would also like to thank all participants in our aqua aerobics and adult squad training, we hope they are feeling great and reveling in the fun, fitness and friendship gained in 2015. Get Wet would like to thank all customers for their continuing support. Please look and like us on Facebook for updates to this newsletter.
As usual, the swim school will be closing for the Christmas Break
LAST DAY: Tuesday, 15th December, 2015
RESUME: Monday, 4th January, 2016
The Swim School will operate Morning Sessions Only as usual during the January holiday period so any after school children who are keen to continue with their lessons, will need to book in accordingly. Please consult the desk person A.S.A.P.
We ask please that all families pay a holding fee of one lesson each child to keep their positions open for 2016.
All December Fees plus the holding fees will need to be settled before the break or the positions will be forfeited. If your children are already part of the Weekly Usual Morning Program and you are planning to be absent for any of the holiday period, we ask that you inform the Swim School as soon as possible and makeup classes can be organized. Please be sure to mark on your calendar or diary/phone the return dates for swimming.
IN ADDITION to these Morning programs we will be offering:
INTENSIVE LESSONS ie. 5 consecutive lessons
These classes are particularly good to bring your children on at a quicker pace. The cost is $65.00 and a $25.00 part-payment is required on booking. This will serve as a cancellation fee for administration costs if intensives are cancelled.
Week One ………Start on Monday 4th January, 2016
Week Two………Start on Monday 11th January, 2016
Week Three……..Start on Monday 18th January, 2016 (N.B. Monday 26th is a Public Holiday – No lessons
The Back to School Program (for afternoons) will resume on Monday 1st February, 2016.
TO ASSIST IN PROGRAMING: It is essential that you inform the swim school of any changes to your child’s lessons for 2016. We will be keen to know as soon as possible please………..for instance:
• Children who will be starting school and shifting from the morning sessions
• New siblings who wish to enroll in the program, including new babies
• Children needing to change days for preschool or other activities.
GIFT VOUCHERS: Grandparents and others are often looking for something to purchase for Christmas.
What could be better than a “gift for life”………..some swimming lessons. Available on request at office.
David, Julie and our wonderful team at Get Wet Swimming would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy & safe holiday season and look forward to seeing you all again in 2016. Please remember to keep your children at arms-length in and around the water and please encourage lots of practice and play. CHEERS.

Hi Everyone Christmas is getting close, we will have a Newsletter for you in the coming week and Get Wet is getting very busy. With many new customers coming on board we are now looking for some dedicated and trained or untrained teachers to step up and join our Team. We are at capacity on Saturday and are now looking for someone to take on a role to help on that day and other days if you want. Get Wet is not only a great Swim School but a great workplace. Get Wet are proud of our staff and support a continuing professional development program in house for all Austswim trained teachers. Right now we are looking for a Saturday teacher with other days available if you want more work.
Give us a call or just come and see us at the Swim School. Don't be shy, give yourself a chance, you don't know what you have to offer until you have a go !!!
