      Is your child a registered gymnast wanting to attend the school holiday program AND their regular term gymnastics class?

      Any registered gymnasts who are attending regular term classes during the holidays and would like to be a part of this school holiday program are encouraged to enrol. Staff will be available to transfer children from the holiday program into their regular term class and back again into the holiday program at their scheduled time. Parents/Guardians MUST advise the front desk when SIGNING IN. This will ensure your childs name is marked on the roll our coaches will use for transferring children to and from classes. Failure to do so will result in your child missing out on their regular gymnastics class.
