Learn to Swim at Ferny Hills Swimming Pool

Ferny Hills offers affordable, high-quality learn to swim programs for both children and adults. Under the new GOswim program, students are guaranteed to improve their swimming and water safety skills. As swimming is a lifesaving skill, it is so important that everyone knows the basics of swimming, as well as how to be safe when in, on and around water.

Implementation of this high-quality, activity-based educational program is designed to better integrate student learning outcomes into real-world settings, offering students opportunity to:

• Gain maximum participation and practice time in activities that encourage, mentor and support the learning process where they are active for most of the lesson

• Be empowered to think, discuss and decide through experiential based learning where mentoring, guidance and challenge encourages them to use and enhance their knowledge, skill and understanding

• Learn and understand essential components of personal survival and water safety elements while concurrently in addition to development of establishing strong and effective swimming technique

• Be supported by professional, qualified teachers as they progress the through the curriculum

• Fast track swimming programs available over the holidays

The Learn to swim journey is powered by innovative technology: the Splash app and digital platform. It is designed to improve communication and interaction between swim school, parent and swimmer. Key technology features of Splash include swimmer notifications on achieving skills and milestones, digital awards, video messaging from the Australian Dolphin Swim team and chat functionality. Together our goal is to put the fun back into learning to swim and keep swimmers loving our sport for longer.
