Frequently Asked Questions

Can I suspend my lessons?

We do not offer suspensions with Learn to Swim memberships. This is because we are unable to guarantee that the students place will still be available on returning to Minky’s Swim School. What we can do for you is cancel your lessons to stop your direct debits, and when you are ready to return, work with you to find a suitable class time.

How do I cancel my lessons if I am on direct debit?

All cancellations must be in writing and with 14 days notice given. Please speak to the customer service officers at the front desk to request a cancellation form. If you are cancelling your lessons due to medical reasons make sure you do so in writing and attach the medical certificate along with it. This includes if the term has ended. All direct debit enrolments are on going until you decide to end them by filling out the cancellation form 14 days prior.

How long will my child be a level for?

Students progress at different rates to each other so some may pass quickly, others may take some time. The average time most students spend in a level is 3 terms. If your child is in the same level of Minky’s Swim School for a period of 9 months without progressing to the next level, we will provide FREE express programs during the school holidays, until they are able to achieve all skills within that level (Terms & Conditions Apply, Minky Swim School Guarantee as stated in Achievement Book).

What happens if we miss a lesson?

If you are unable to attend a lesson due to other commitments, you are entitled to 1 free family swim pass, per student per term (without a medical certificate). To receive your family swim pass, please come and see reception the week after you missed your lesson and our friendly staff will be able to issue that for you!
If you are unable to attend a lesson/s due to medical reasons, we will honour each of the lessons missed with a free family swim pass, so long as a medical certificate stating the dates that you are unable to attend is presented to reception. The swim passes cannot be issued without the medical certificate. Please note that you can only claim passes for missed lessons during the term that the lessons were missed, not the following term.
We do not offer credits, refunds or make up lessons for any lessons missed.

 

My Account for Swim School 

Through My Account the Responsible Person of students enrolled in Minky Swim School is able to access course information. The responsible person is usually the parent or guardian of the child, or the participant themselves for those in our adult lessons.

The Responsible Person for each Minky’s Swim School account will have access to My Account.  Here you can access the following course information. 

My Account includes access to:

  • Enrollment details including - day, time, class level, centre and lane.
  • Skills required 
  • Past levels
  • Past classes

My Account also includes a certificate download link which becomes available once students progress from their current level. The certificate automatically embeds the students' name, teacher’s name and completion date and can be printed at home by the parent as soon as they receive the progression email. But don’t worry, we will still be providing hard copies too!
