Make up Lesson Policy of our Swim School
As a benefit to all our swimming families we do offer make-up lessons if your swimmer/s are unwell or cannot make their class.
If your swimmer is unwell, it is important that they not attend lessons. This is so that they have the chance to get better, as well as not passing on the illness to other swimmers. By notifying the Swim School Office 24 hours in advance of their lesson we can offer them a make up lesson. If they fall sick within 24 hours of their lesson, we will require a Doctor’s Certificate, but still call us prior to their lesson to let us know.
If you are going away and can’t attend lessons we again require 24 hours notice to be eligible for a make-up lesson.
Please note that Make Up lessons are offered subject to availability and the full payment of fees.
They must be taken in the current term and we allow only 2 per swimmer, per term.
