Half Term Holiday lessons 17-21 Feb 2014
Posted on 22 Jan 2014 at 11:35 by Sue Lambert (0 user comment)
Once again, Bluefins is planning to run our very popular Holiday Lessons during half term at Cranbourne College.
Places are open to children aged 4+, members and non-members. Children come each day at a pre-booked time for the bargain price of £10 for the whole week.
Spaces are available in half-hour sessions between 1.30 and 4pm in shallow, middle and deep sections of the pool. A session for length swimmers will run at 1.30pm only.
Small groups, enthusiastic and knowledgable teachers and pool helpers - a great way to learn or improve on swimming skills!
