The Mount Annan Leisure Centre (MALC) has won this year’s AUSTSWIM NSW award in the category of Swim School of Excellence – Large.
The prestigious award is the premier award presented in Australia for high standards of aquatic education excellence. This award, along with the Australian Swim School Association (ASSA) National Award for Excellence in Inclusion that MALC Swim School received last year, cements the MALC Swim School as an industry leading Swim School in the local community.
To be eligible for an award the nominees must have been able to demonstrate considerable experience and or knowledge in all areas of the selection criteria including how the centre’s programs are founded in learning outcomes that enhance personal knowledge, skill and understanding of aquatic environments for safer participation in, on and around water; and the initiatives the centre implements to engage, interact and educate the community for safer aquatic participation.
MALC Centre Manager Ryan O'Loughlin said the team was extremely proud and grateful to have been recognised in this way.
“The passion, dedication and support within the LTS team has been part of the culture of the team for many years,” Ryan said.
“Whilst MALC has always had a reputation as having a wonderful Swim School program, the way that the program has bounced back after two lockdowns has been extraordinary.
“The number of enrolments has steadily grown, even in winter, and receiving an award such as this is a true reflection of the wonderful work the LTS Instructors, Wet Deck supervisors and Management team do on a daily basis.
“Being able to have a positive impact in providing safe and enjoyable lessons for such a large and diverse number of enrolments is extremely rewarding and it’s a credit to everyone involved,” he said.
The Y NSW has managed the MALC for over 12 years on behalf of Camden Council. The team looks forward to continuing the partnership for many years to come in providing water safety education for babies, infants, young people through to adults in the community.
Congratulations to all involved!
