Health and Safety

Well maintained and monitored pools pose very little threat to you or your child's health. Filter systems efficiently remove unwanted solid matter while chlorine kills practically all germs. In fact, your home bathtub and bathwater are more likely to make you ill. Remember also that water is not the only way that bacteria and viruses are transported. Many germs travel through air, while others are transmitted through person to person contact. At least in the pool, water borne germs are at a disadvantage because of the chlorine's instant killing effect.

Although our Programmes are an enjoyable way to enhance you and your child's all round development, we should acknowledge the fact that the common sense approach to all aspects of healthy living is a prudent measure to maintain good health.

Consequently, we ask that you respect our precautionary health rules and refrain from attending lessons if you or your child are suffering from any of the following communicable complaints:

  • Viral Infections eg. Colds, Sore throats or Fever
  • Cold Sores
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Gastroenteritis (within the last 24 hours) vomiting and diarrhea
  • Ringworm
  • Rubella
  • and any other contagious disease
