SWIMMING LESSONS AT PUBLIC POOLS
We spent last week finding out which public pools offer free swimming lessons via the government sponsored Learn-to-Swim program and which ones have private teachers who use their pools.
Unfortunately we discovered East Rand public pools still have no phone lines. So we apologise on their behalf and welcome feedback from you about these facilities.
SWIMMING LESSONS AT PRIVATE SCHOOLS
The private schools listed teach babies, toddlers and all ages. Several of these schools have heated indoor pools which teach swimming throughout the year.
