Implementation of this high-quality, activity-based learning program is designed to better integrate student learning outcomes into real-world settings, giving students opportunity to:
  • Gain maximum participation and practice time in activities that encourage, mentor and support the learning process.
  • Be empowered to think, discuss and decide through experimental based learning where mentoring, guidance and challenge encourages them to us and enhance their knowledge skill and understanding. 
  • Learn and understand essential personal survival and water safety elements while concurrently establishing strong and effective swimming technique.
  • Be supported by professional, qualified teachers as they progress the curriculum toward the Optus Junior Dolphins Program. 

The New Levels!

Optus Junior Dolphins!

Swimming Australia has developed the Optus Junior Dolphins program, positioned as a flow on from the learning foundations in swimming and water safety education. Optus Junior Dolphins is designed to encourage continued participation in aquatic activity through competitive and reactional lap swimming.

The integration of Optus Junior Dolphins creates a specific pathway for students enhancing their lifetime aquatic experiences, preparing them for the competitive swimming arena if they so desire. The Optus Junior Dolphins program builds on the core and foundation elements learnt in swimming and water safety education, as each skill is broken down into segmented and achievable components that streamline and refine technique and enhance the development of efficiency and endurance.

 
The Optus Splash App!

Alongside the new program, Belgravia Leisure is also excited to introduce the new Optus Splash App. This app will be a key communication tool between that Windy Hill Swim School will utilise. 

Please download the app and keep an eye out for an email with login details during the next week!
