With regard to the Covid-19 Virus, we have consulted with the many stakeholders that are relevant to our Industry..
Afternoon & Saturday Classes
The Swim School will be open as usual (see the calendar) for swimming lessons.
Please note that we will be closed on Sat 21 March for the Public Holiday and from Monday 23rd March to Monday 30th March 2020 for School Holidays).
Please also be aware that we will be monitoring the situation and will inform you should anything change.
- Chlorine is a sanitizer and it is the main ingredient in our chemical application for the pool water.
- We have started using an additional sanitizer for the water (as an additional precaution, although we have been told that this is not necessary, we would rather be safe)
- We have installed electronic “gadgets” or testing devices in the pools to read our chemical levels every 30 minutes, so it has taken the “human guess work” out of the chemical applications, and chemicals are always in balance.
- We have installed Hand Sanitisers in and around The Swim School to remind our Members to keep their hands clean.
Please note that this virus does not like warm temperatures, and the pool area is warm (always summertime there)
As a precaution, if your child is showing signs of the ‘flu, please do not send them to swimming. We will make sure that your child does not miss out on lesson time.
Please note that Term 2 is 11 weeks long. So there are 3 additional weeks in the term as we only charge you for 8 classes/weeks. If we are forced to close for a period of time, we will then readjust our calendar so that everyone gets the attention that they deserve. We will cross that bridge if it comes to that.
Our Teachers have also committed to curbing their exposure by not going out to public places after hours.
Should you wish to keep your child away during the imposed school holidays, kindly let us know so that we can use that time to catch up classes for other students.
Thanking you all for your kind co-operation and support, and wishing you all good health and peace and serenity during these turbulent times.
Please note that Prize Giving is on my radar – and we will only confirm this date once all the sanctions have been lifted.

Midmar 2020 was a resounding success, despite the rain, our swimmers did exceptionally well.

The swimmers collectively brought back 168 medals – one for each mile completed.
Our Special Needs swimmers were amazing, and were able to finish before the lightning struck!
Special thanks to our dedicated staff, teachers and admin, who worked so hard before, during and after Midmar 2020 to make Midmar “The Swim School way” an event to remember.
