I do apologise for the delay in getting this newsletter out to you. I seem to be in the water so much that I never get the time to catch up on my admin (which is my least favourite bit anyway!!).
Firstly, we have been asked by Royal Lifesaving, who administer the Swim and Survive Program (basically the curriculum we use) to ask you guys to complete a short survey to make sure this program continues to meet the needs and expectations of parents and kids in WA. Your replies are anonymous, but will provide me with useful data specific to Sea Turtle Swim School.
As a thank you for participating, RLSSWA are offering the chance to win one of two $50 Coles/Woolworths vouchers. If you wish to go into the draw for this prize, please leave your name and number at the end of the survey.
To complete the survey, please head to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Swim_and_survive
If you have any questions about the survey, please feel free to call Stephanie Enkel at Royal Lifesaving on 9383 8200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We keep our pool heated to 32 degrees centigrade. It’s far warmer in the water than sitting on the side of the pool! However, as the weather turns, I have been getting enquiries about the Toastees’ rashies that I recommend. They are thicker than a normal rashie and really help keep the chill at bay when getting in and out of the pool or waiting for your turn to swim. They are not cheap, but the hope is to have enough in circulation to eventually have a second-hand market going for them!
If I get 10 or more orders, I am able to get them for a wholesale price, which is a little cheaper than the retail price, plus we can share the cost of the postage. Below are the types and costs for the rashies (all come with the Sea Turtle Swim School logo printed on them)
|TYPE||SIZES||COLOURS||COST (inc. $3 for postage)|
|INFANT SPRING SUIT||0||YELLOW BLACK/ RED BLACK/
|KIDS SPRING SUIT||1-6||BLACK WITH BLUE OR BLACK WITH PINK||$63|
|KIDS TOP SHORT SLEEVE WITH FULL ZIP||1-6||BLUE/ RED/ PINK/ YELLOW||$53|
|KIDS TOP SHORT SLEEVE WITH FULL ZIP||8-12||BLACK WITH BLUE / BLACK WITH PINK/ BLACK WITH RED/ BLACK WITH YELLOW||$58|
|KIDS TOP LONG SLEEVE WITH FULL ZIP||6-12||BLACK WITH BLUE / BLACK WITH PINK/ BLACK WITH RED/ BLACK WITH YELLOW||$63|
|SKINNY KIDS TOP||4-6||BLUE/PINK/RED||$53|
|SKINNY KIDS TOP||8-10||BLUE/PINK/RED||$58|
|ADULT OCEAN SERIES LONG SLEEVE WITH FULL ZIP||XS-XL||BLUE & BLACK/ PINK & BLACK/ RED & BLACK||$68|
|ADULT OCEAN SERIES LONG SLEEVE WITH FULL ZIP||2XL-5XL||BLUE & BLACK/ PINK & BLACK/ RED & BLACK||$73|
|CHLORINE RESISTANT INSTRUCTOR TOP LONG SLEEVE||XS-5XL||BLUE & BLACK/ PINK & BLACK/ RED & BLACK||$108|
Please make sure you order the right size – they need to be a snug fit to keep warm. If you want to read more about the rashie, or see what they look like, please have a look at their website: www.toasteeswetsuits.com.au
I will be placing the order on Wednesday 24 May, so please let me know before then what you would like to order. Payment can be made via deposit into my bank account, or by cash.
Finally, thank you to everyone who is parking on our property. There is more then enough space so I do appreciate your consideration of our neighbours. Please also be extremely vigilant with your kids while walking to and from the pool. We love the enthusiasm with which most kids come haring down the driveway, but please do treat the driveway with the same caution you would a road. Thank you!
See you all poolside, and happy swimming,
Cathy and Mike
