Date: December 7, 2017    Posted by: Megan Meineke

Following the recent opening of the much anticipated Sunshine Coast Grammar School Aquatic Centre in November, the school is proud to announce its Learn to Swim School will open its doors to the public in January under the direction of newly appointed Learn to Swim Coordinator, Kellie Hutchings.

Kellie will be responsible for the growth and development of the Grammar Swim School, one of the newest Learn to Swim Schools on the Sunshine Coast.

Joining Sunshine Coast Grammar School after fourteen years’ experience in the aquatics industry, Kellie specialises in teaching, swim school management and administration.

Most recently Kellie was the Swim School Coordinator at Gympie Aquatic Recreation Centre where she was involved in the initial set up and development of the Centre. Prior to this position, Kellie spent many years working with the Department of Education Queensland teaching children with special needs in learn to swim and surf programs.

Along with a strong skill set and passion for teaching children to swim, the move to Sunshine Coast Grammar School provides Kellie with the opportunity to grow and develop the Learn to Swim School and program offerings from the ground up.

Grammar Swim School will teach children from six months through to junior squad level with a strong focus on learning to swim safely, developing technique and skill sets.

“I am most excited about joining the wonderful community spirit and passion for learning here at Grammar, and am inspired to ensure that this spirit is brought to life in our Learn to Swim environment,” said Kellie.

“I love being able to make a difference from teaching children about water safety to helping them develop an essential skill set for life.”

Kellie’s credentials include: AUSTSWIM Assessor; Teacher of Swimming and Safety; Teacher of Access and Inclusion, Teacher of Infants.

Relocating from Gympie, Kellie and her family look forward to being closer to family on the Sunshine Coast and joining the Grammar community.

The Grammar Swim School welcomes families from around the Sunshine Coast with classes commencing in January 2018. Enrolment enquires can be emailed to: aquatics@scgs.qld.edu.au
