Karen and Mandy: Staff spotlight

We are super proud and excited to give a shout out to two of our wonderful PARC swim teachers.

Karen and Mandy are two of our longest serving swim teachers, teaching children to swim at PARC for a massive 8 years!

They have both taught hundreds of infants, children and parents important life saving skills around water, as well as a countless number of children how to swim.

Thank you both for your amazing service to PARC and to all of the babies, children and parents in the Frankston community. We are so lucky and proud to have you both working at PARC!

We caught up with Karen and Mandy in the water to ask them a few questions about themselves and why they love swim teaching so much.

Favourite past time:

Karen: Spending time with family and friends
Mandy: I love watching movies and going out for dinner

What is your favourite part of being a swim teacher?

Karen: I enjoy working with children and seeing them grow and enjoy the benefits of swimming, as well as watching them become confident in the water.
Mandy: I love seeing the children progress and their happy little faces.

What do you love the most about working at PARC?

Karen: It’s a very satisfying and positive place to work. Lots of encouraging people and good teamwork .
Mandy: I love the great atmosphere and the network of friends.

Levels you teach:

Karen: Infants levels, Pufferfish 1, 3, 4 and Tadpoles 1-3
Mandy: Infants and levels 1-2 . Infants are my favourite.
