June 2012 - Malaysian Invitation

Marcelle, Dick and Ben recently returned from Hong Kong where they ran many Swim Coach and AUSTSWIM courses plus Aqua Workshops in conjunction with Aquatic Educations partners. Their feet barely touched the ground when Aquatic Education were invited to Malaysia by a 'D Swim Academy' who have a number of swim schools in Kuala Lumpar. Marcelle has been engaged as a consultant to develop programs and run professional development and AUSTSWIM courses for their swim teachers. It is great to see that our Asian neighbours want to increase the quality of the swimming and water safety teachers and look to Australia for the standard. While Marcelle is away the incredibly talented Aquatic Education staff have been continuing to run the office and conduct training courses......thanks Lisa, Dick, Scott and Ben
