The swim school, recog­nised as New Zealand’s swim school of the year in 2012, has a very clear goal. To pro­vide ev­ery child they teach with the strength, abil­ity, con­fi­dence and tech­nique so that, in an emer­gency, they can not only save them­selves but po­ten­tially save another per­son whether it be a friend, fam­ily mem­ber or a com­plete stranger. Each of the 40+ swim school teach­ers fol­lows this ethos and works to progress both chil­dren and adults with this end goal in mind.
