Ruyton Aquatic Swim School

Our goal is to help children reach a higher level of swimming performance at a much earlier age.


Dear Ruyton Aquatic Centre families,

The current COVID-19 pandemic is causing significant disruptions across all sections of our community.  Please rest assured that the health and wellbeing of our community including our staff, families, and students involved in all activities, is of the utmost importance to us.  As a result, we have come to the decision to act with caution and cancel all swimming classes from Saturday 14 March for the balance of this term.  Holiday Programme scheduled for week 1 of the term break will also be cancelled.

 A refund for lessons scheduled during the following two weeks will be provided as a credit against your Term 2 fees.

We thank you for your understanding and wish you well during these challenging times.  If you have any concerns regarding our decision please contact Ruyton’s Director of Business, Finance and Facilities, Leanne Smith, smithl@ruyton.vic.edu.au 



The Ruyton Aquatic Swim School teaches swimming to students of Ruyton Girls' School and the community. We cater for varying age groups and abilities, from Parent and Child classes (6 mths+) through to Squad Programmes.

The Ruyton Aquatic Swim School operates during school term dates.
