Swim Waiheke classes splash out Taking the plunge: Swim Waiheke instructor Cara Tahapehi with a beginners' class By JEROME GAVELLE With double teaching hours and an extra instructor Swim Waiheke is ready to cater to everyone wanting to learn how to swim -- from babies to adults. The organisation also helps others improve their swim- ming skills while keeping the number of students in a class low. Swimming instructor Cara Tahapehi says the aim is to have as few as four to five students in each class at the Te Huruhi swimming pool, which will be open to the pub- lic on weekends between noon and 5pm from November 20. Enrolled swimmers receive ten free swims during public opening hours while the entry fee is $2.50 for the rest of the public. Enrolment for the block courses has opened and Ms Tahapehi says the response has been good. The first one will take place during the summer holidays and runs between January 10 and January 29. It consists of three 30-minute classes per week with enrolled swimmers being able to select between Monday, Wednesday and Friday, or Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. It costs $72. Discounts are available for families with two or more children. The second block course takes place from January 31 to March 10. Learners will attend two 30-minute classes per week and can select between Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday. The cost is $96, with family discounts avail- able. Living on an island with so many beautiful beaches makes learning to swim a must, Ms Tahapehi says. She and her fellow Swim Waiheke instructors Tony Wood, Aleisha Kihi and Fern Alexander offer a range of courses. Email swimwaiheke@hot- mail.co.nz for more infor- mation.
