In the swim for awards

Just a few of the 10s of thousands of kids taught how to swim at Beatty Park so far.

BEATTY Park Swim School has been nationally recognised with team leader Rebecca Ross taking home the top award for emerging talent. 

Ms Ross started as a swim teacher there in 2010 and is now a team leader. She won the award at the Australian Swim Schools Association excellence awards in Adelaide, and the Beatty Park Swim School itself got a “highly commended” mark in the Safer Swimming category

Ms Ross was recognised for building a strong and happy culture there, and driving a record number of enrolments at the swim school – with 2800 students this year.

Vincent mayor Emma Cole said in a press release: “I would like to congratulate Rebecca and the swim school on this amazing achievement. From its Angelfish program for students with a disability to block lessons for fly-in, fly-out workers and tailored lessons for Ukrainian refugees, our swim school has taught people from all ages and walks of life how to swim and be safe in the water.”

Beatty Park Leisure Centre last week recorded 1 million visits this financial year, the first time they’ve ever hit the milestone in the centre’s 61-year history.
