Hiya last Sunday I was told there was still swimming today (25th) and it was fun day - can anyone confirm pls πŸŠβ€β™€οΈπŸ™
Your local pool needs your help!
I know lots of children in the local area who have learnt to swim at Leesland School. It’s in need of crucial repairs including lighting and pool-liner replacements. Local business owners are scaling three mountains to raise money for these crucial repairs. Details of what, who, when and of course how you can help are inside this months edition…link is here: https://bit.ly/3AzjqCs πŸ’¦ Academy Swim [email protected]
Hi my son had his swimming lesson on Tuesday at 9.30am just checking to see if I left his red swimming top behind in the changing rooms? Thanks 😊
My girls missing their swimming lesson so practising at home!
Myself and Pippa would like to wish all instructors and very merry Christmas and will see u all in the new year :-)

Hi, yes Ollie will be there next Monday. 😁
Hi Ollie has left his black camelbak sports bottle at the pool tonight. It should have been on the side of the pool, top right as you come in the door. Would you have picked it up, do you have lost property or does it go in the schools lost property?
Amelia is very chuffed she was made James' swimmer of the week yesterday. Thank you James, she promises to keep working hard.
Thank you for all your hard work with Evangeline. Yesterday she swam in the sea with her bodyboard!
If anyone happens to find that they’ve got an additional pair of navy TU clothing joggers aged 9, AJ managed to lose his in the male changing room today! πŸ™„

**UPDATE - Pool Re-Opening Spring Term 2023**

We have been told today that the pool will be ready for us to return on Monday 16 January. This means our Spring Term is now 10 weeks long. Credit notes will be applied to accounts and balances will be adjusted. If you have paid in full for the term and would prefer to have a refund rather than carry the fees forward to the Summer Term please email [email protected] quoting your swimmer's name(s) and your bank details.

Please accept our apologies for the delay in our return to swimming.

We all look forward to seeing you all from Monday 16 January.

Kind regards

**IMPORTANT INFORMATION** Start of Spring Term Delayed

Dear Parents / Guardians

We are very sorry but the start of the spring term will be delayed by around five days.

The school informed us last night that the work to repair the paint around the pool surround has not been finished. We apologise for the late notice but we were completely unaware that the pool would not be ready for us to return on 9 January.

There is not a firm date in place yet for us to return, we have been told it will take five days but they are hoping it may be sooner. As soon as we have a definite date we will be touch. Please keep an eye on our page and your emails as this is where we will update.

Credits will be given for any lessons missed.

Once again, please accept our apologies for the inconvenience, it is not how we wanted to start 2023.

Thank you for your understanding and patience, we look forward to seeing you soon.

Jo, Caroline & Jane

05/01/2023

Happy New Year to all our swimming families. We are looking forward to seeing you soon.
Just a reminder of our 11 week Spring Term dates:

We will be on our Christmas break from 5pm Thursday 22 December, returning to office work on Tuesday 3 January.

Emails, messages and voicemails received after 5pm on 22 December will be answered from 3 January. Please bear with us, we will reply as soon as we can.

Everyone at Aqua Academy would like to wish all our swimmers and their families a very merry Christmas and happy New Year πŸŽ„

Thank you all so much for your continued support this year, looking forward to an exciting swimming year in 2023 🍾

Our new term starts Monday 9 January, see you then!

**URGENT POOL CLOSURE**

Unfortunately we have just received news that Leesland pool will be closed until January. The freezing conditions caused the paint to lift around the pool leaving lots of dangerous sharp edges. The pool now needs to be stripped back and repainted. The completion of this work will not be possible before the end of term so lessons will not be able to resume until January 2023.

Credit notes will be issued for these missed lessons. These can be deducted from next term's fees or we can provide refunds for non-returnees.

Certificates can be collected when we return in January. Our Spring term commences Monday 9 January.

We are extremely sorry that our Autumn Term has ended so abruptly and we apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.

We wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and we look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.

Caroline, Jo & the rest of the Aqua Team.

Just had to share this clip of Jack’s beautiful backstroke last night.

Jack has been with Aqua since he was a baby, he’s progressed through the levels and now swims in a one hour squad group.

His beautiful stroke really highlights that Jack loves his lessons and tries his absolute best every week, he is a pleasure to teach. We are so glad that his parents brought him to our baby classes 10 years ago!

Jack, we are super proud of you πŸ‘

Monday 19 September - Important Notice

In light of the Queen's State Funeral arrangements, Leesland Junior School will be closed for the bank holiday and as such there will be no swimming lessons for Monday 19 September.

To reflect the loss of this session, we have extended Autumn Term to have an additional session on Monday 19 December.

To confirm:

Monday 19 September pool closed

Monday 19 December replacement session

We look forward to seeing Monday swimmers back on the 26 September.

05/09/2022

IMPORTANT NOTICE

We have just been informed by the school that the car park gates will be locked until 9.10am and 3.30pm in order to make Whitworth Close safer for the children entering and leaving the school.

Please do not arrive at the pool until 9.10am for weekday morning lessons and 3.30pm for afternoon lessons as you will not be able to access the car park.

Please avoid queuing in Whitworth Close to wait for the gates to open as this will hinder residents and also stop staff getting to the pool in time.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Jo, Caroline & Jane

Unicorns and other inflatables might look like fun, but they pose a real danger at the beach. If tides are going out and the wind is blowing offshore (from land to sea), you can easily be swept out to sea in a matter of seconds. So please leave these toys for the pool πŸ¦„βœ”οΈ

If you’re heading to the beach with your family this weekend, follow our safety tips below and visit the Met Office website for the latest weather warnings: https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/ β˜€οΈπŸŒ‘οΈ

β€’ Choose a lifeguarded beach
β€’ Swim between the red and yellow flags
β€’ Supervise children closely at all times
β€’ Leave inflatables at home
β€’ If you take to the sea, wear a suitable lifejacket or buoyancy aid

If you find yourself being blown out to sea, shout for help and wave your arms if you can or if you unexpectedly fall into the water remember the RNLI’s advice and : https://rnli.org/safety/float

In an emergency at the coast, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard πŸ“ž
