Starfish Swim School is privately owned and operated. We are a controlled environment and NOT open to the public for
recreational use. Our pool hygiene is to the highest quality. We use 2 forms of pool disinfectants – Chlorine and UV
(please refer to the website to learn about the benefits of both.) As evidence suggests, the pool environment is not a conductor for Covid-19, quite the contrary. Due to the amounts of chemicals we must maintain and because of the high pool temperature.
Starfish is following the guidelines and recommendations for safe pool operations in this new Covid19 world set out by SafeWork Australia and DHHS Victoria. Your safety is our priority.
Let’s get the kids back swimming, learning and enjoying their time at Starfish Swim School.
