Caroline & Trevor open new swim school in Warragul on record numbers
The JUMP! Warragul Open Day was held over the Australia Day weekend with a record 407 students already pre-booked into lessons
JUMP! Swim Schools Warragul owners’ Caroline and Trevor Hatcher said massive support from the community reaffirmed Warragul’s need for a family-run private learn to swim facility.
“I realised that there was a huge need for a swim school in this area – they had nothing at the time. The Leisure Centre had been closed for 18 months and there was literally nowhere for kids to learn to swim. You open the door when opportunity knocks!
“Mums have been booked in for 6 months now and they are hanging in there. Mums and Dads are thrilled that we are coming, they are after lessons with a point of difference where they can feel comfortable that their children will receive the best care and learning possible.”
The Hatcher’s are ready to make a huge difference to the Warragul community after having spent years volunteering heavily with German Shepherd Rescue Victoria.
“My husband Trevor and I have not been blessed with children so I was looking for an environment where I could get my “fix” on a daily basis. Volunteering has been such a rewarding part of life for us and makes our hearts sing and keeps a smile on our dials. We can’t wait to start this next chapter of our lives with JUMP! and begin teaching children to swim every day.”
Through the programs run at JUMP! Swim Schools, Caroline and Trevor hope to prepare children and educate parents about water safety.
“I’m really looking forward to seeing the smiling faces of the kids every day as they look forward to their lessons.”
