Dear Gary and Desley

Just a quick note to let you know how happy I am to have Sophie back in your swim school super tot class again. After being in Brisbane over the past 9 months, and not having Sophie swimming down there, it was wonderful to come back to a class with Cathy. She was brilliant with Sophie – offering wonderful sensitivity, encouragement and guidance in skill development. Sophie very quickly warmed to the class after initially clinging to me. I am sure she will gain her “swimming fins” back in no time. I cannot recommend your school and classes high enough – and already have encouraged a girlfriend, enrolling her little one later this week.

Again thank you and your staff for your professionalism, warmth and for the excellent swim school that you offer. Look forward to seeing you all again next Tuesday

All the best,
