about our school

Peter Tulk Swimming School History

Welcome to our swim school. We have nurtured this school for over 25 years, having owned and operated it since 1990. We are very proud of our programs and our class sizes, only two (2) per learn-to swim class.

With our small, private indoor heated pool, minimal distractions and friendly, qualified instructors ; Peter and staff hope to see your children learn and master one of the most important activities that they will be taught in life and that is to be a safe, capable and strong swimmer.

Our school caters for all levels from 6 months old to seniors. With ASCTA, Swim Australia and AUSTSWIM accreditation, Peter and the team take great pleasure in teaching your child how to develop skills that will stay with them for life.

  • be assisted and encouraged
  • learn at his/her own pace
  • improve co-ordination

How we get results!

What is our secret

We start by using bath toys and then progress to kickboards, floatation devices and the retrieval of rings from the bottom of the pool. Our intention is to increase your child's confidence in the water while at the same time allowing them to enjoy the experience. We also use swim aids such as the 'magic carpet' mat and swim platforms.

Your child's safety and well being is of paramount importance to us. We wish to equip each child with the necessary skills to be safe in and around water.

By monitoring your childs swimming progress and technique, we can easily assess where things are going right and wrong. When your child has achieved all goals in a particular program they will be progressed to the next level and receive a certificate acknowledging this (this is done on a quarterly basis).

Correct technique
Our experience assists us in identifying any issues with your child's swim technique. We can put in place a plan that will correct their form/ technique to ensure they swim correctly (applies from Goldfish onwards).
