Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre and Lismore Memorial Baths are committed to safety

Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre and the Lismore Memorial Baths provide a child friendly and child safe environment for children who attend our centres. We are always working to improve our practices to ensure this occurs. We would like all swim school parents to please take note of and abide by the policy below to ensure your children are kept safe while they attend our swimming program.

Our policy for swimming pool attendance is that children who enter our pool area who are under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a person over the age of 16, and must be supervised at all times. This supervision is either by a responsible carer or swim school staff member while students are in lessons. To help us with supervision requirements, we outline below the following policy for our Learn-to-Swim and Stroke Development.

All children under 12 who are in Learn-to-Swim classes must be accompanied into the pool by a responsible carer over the age of 16, taken to their teacher at the start of the lesson and picked up from the teacher at the end of the lesson. For these programs the carer must stay in the pool area at all times.
