The Splash Palace Swim School provides quality and affordable swimming lessons at the Splash Palace and Bluff pools. The Swim School focuses on providing confidence for children in and around water and to advance their abilities to a level where they can participate in aquatic sports and other recreational activities.

“In the water teaching” for babies to beginners is part of the unique programme offered by the school’s qualified, professional and dedicated swim teachers. Small class sizes ensure individual tuition. Achievement certificates are awarded at the end of each course.


Swim School has 14 trained teachers. They all hold or are working towards their Aust Swim STA award, and three teachers have a Diploma in Swim Teaching. Each teacher has a current first aid certificate and Pool Lifeguard award. Splash Palace is also a Quality Swim School, a standard set by Swimming New Zealand.
