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!
