Swimming

The Program

Yarrabah runs a swimming program for school aged students. This program is based on the principals and methods of Austswim. The Junior students swim at Aspendale Swim Centre, Middles at Swimsafe in Mentone and the Intermediate and Senior students at Waves Leisure Centre in Cheltenham. Our Prep students participate in a spa program to prepare them for the school aged program. An additional hydrotherapy program is also run for students with high physical needs.
