Welcome to Jolly Roger Swim School - located in Carterton, Wairarapa

A message from the Jolly Roger directors/head instructors Lynn Wiffen and Melissa Staines:

We have many years experience teaching swimming to all ages and all abilities/disabilities - from babies to adults.  We believe in continual development for ourselves, our team and our students.

We formed the swim school in April 2011 and, as well as taking classes ourselves, we also have Rob King, Amelia Bushnell, Erina Wood, Corrina Paine, and Beatriz ('Bea') Recio Rodriguez instructing for us.  It is our desire to see the children achieve their best in swimming, gain vital water safety skills and be confident and happy in the water.

We love our chosen career of teaching children to swim – a position we are honoured to have and which has enormous 'job satisfaction’ qualities and results.

Lynn and Melissa

If, after the third lesson of the term, you are not satisfied with your child’s swimming lessons, please make contact with Lynn or Melissa so we can discuss any issues and put measures in place to rectify.  If you are still not happy by week five of the term, we will offer a full refund of the purchase price.


Customer Service

Customer service is very important to us, and each term we ask our customers to fill out a customer feedback form.  Please do not hesitate to contact Lynn or Melissa if you have any queries or concerns regarding your child’s lessons, or progress.
