A whole day of


Swim School

At Parakai Springs Swim School our emphasis right from the start is all about water confidence, once children are happy to be in the water they learn so much faster. We will teach ANYBODY who wants to learn or update their swimming skills.

We believe swimming is an important life skill that all children growing up in New Zealand should learn. It is our Aim to have as many children as possible in our community learn to swim so we strive to offer quality lessons at reasonable prices.
