AQUA Schools is a leading swim school focused on teaching in a safe and clean environment. Here's a few things that we are doing during this period to keep our promise!
COVID Safe Plan:
AQUA Schools has done all the hard work already to ensure we have the cleanest and safest facility for our staff, students and their families. We have developed a detailed COVID Safe Plan which reinforces the restrictions that the Department of Health and Human Services and the Chief Health Officer have set in order to operate safely during this period. As a small private centre, we are able to remain agile in how we structure our program in order to be able to accomodate any sudden changes that arise.
Unlimited Make-up Lessons:
We have amended our makeup policy to benefit all students if they are unable to attend their regular class. Unlimited makeups will now be provided instead of the usual limit of 2 makeups. To qualify for a makeup lesson, notice must be given a minimum of 2 hours prior to the start of class. If notice is not received, you will not be able to makeup that class.
Makeup lessons are valid for 3 months.
Throughout the day, our staff regularly conduct cleaning and disinfection tasks. This includes regular cleaning and disinfection of high traffic areas, frequently touched surfaces and toilets. We have also installed wall mounted hand sanitizer dispensers around the centre.
To protect the health and safety of our staff, parents and students, we require all visitors (18yrs and over) to register their details and health declaration upon arrival to each lesson via our Service Victoria QR code. This will provide us with a record of all visitors to our centre. Your data will be deleted after the mandatory government time period requirement for contact tracing record keeping.
To adhere to social distancing requirements, change tables have been moved to different areas of the centre. Please ensure that social distancing is maintained throughout your entire visit in the centre.
As pool deck is a smaller shared space, we have created entry and exit points to ease congestion at start and finish times of each lesson. We ask that parents and students exit pool deck as soon as their class is finished. Please dry and change children in changeroom facilities. There will be limited seating on pool deck to adhere to social distancing requirements.
COVID Safe Trained Staff:
To maintain the highest levels of COVID safety and response, all staff operating in our centre have been COVID safe trained and have completed the Federal Government's COVID Infection Control training course.
As mask restrictions change frequently, send us a message to get an update on whether masks are mandatory in our centres.
NOTE: masks do not need to be worn in the pool.
If you have a valid mask exemption, please notify our duty manager.
