Dear Parents and Swimmers,
I am writing to let you all know that for family reasons I have sold the Swim School. From 1st June 2017, the new owners will be Noreen Groenewald, and Irene Meyer. Many of you will know them. They are both qualified and experienced swimming teachers, who have been teaching here. Noreen is currently in the water with her baby, Desire, on Monday evenings.
I will be here until 27th June 2017 so the transition goes as smoothly as possible.
I would like to express my deepest thanks to everyone who has been part of the Swim School, and of my life at some point during the last 20 years. You’ve made it possible for me to fulfil a long standing dream, of owning one of the best Swim Schools around! It’s been a pleasure and a privilege to teach and be involved in the teaching of so many swimmers over the years, and to work with the very capable people who have helped me in various capacities.
I am confident that Noreen and Irene will continue the high standards that have been set, and move the Swim School forward in new ways. They will be introducing themselves officially in the Winter Newsletter at the beginning of June.
Now, to practical matters:
All the teachers, drivers and helpers will continue their current duties, so on the day to day level, everything will be as it is now.
Payments for lessons up to the end of May should be paid into the current Swim School account.
Payments for lessons from June onwards should be paid into the new account, details of which are available from the Swim School.
Please continue to use your reference number for payments.
If you have already paid for lessons from June, I will transfer the money you have paid to the new owner’s account.
The blue card system for cash payments will continue to operate.
The Swim School will continue to be known as Irena’s Swim School, and contact details will remain the same.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me in the meantime if you have any queries or concerns, or just want to say good bye!
