The School

The fern

Like each of us, especially young children, the fern contains all of the information needed to grow within it. The challenge is to discover that potential and to use everything available to grow to your full potential.

What it represents

The Fern represents the unfolding of a new life and everything is reborn and continues to grow. It represents transformation, renewal and hope for the future. In other words, it symbolizes what we offer at Aquatics Academy Swim School. Register for swimming lessons

Swimming is a great skill to have and provides an activity the family can enjoy together. It’s always great to see mums and dads sharing in the fun and games with their kids during lessons. Register to Aquatics Academy

It’s never too early or too late to learn how to swim. There is no doubt that the aquatic playgrounds around New Zealand offer plenty of opportunities to enjoy water with confidence.

About Leilani

I have been working 7 years in the swimming industry in New Zealand providing lessons. First I started to work as a swimming Instructor and Co-ordinator at the Te Awamutu Event Centre for nearly 5 years. After that I started Aquatics Academy Swim School …

That was hard work but best years of my life. Just to see how these children improved in their swimming skills and to meet wonderful parents as well. In this period I also helped Te Awamutu Swimming Club as a swimming Instructor as well as Assistant Swimming Coach.

I have two lovely boys myself. One is a competitive swimmer who does lessons often and is really driven to succeed and excell in his swimming journey, the other is a soccer player and can't wait to see where that leads him.
