Community Swimming at St Michaels School
- S.O.S. Swim School’s responsibility for minors shall not commence until the pupils are invited to enter the water by the tutor, and shall end when the class is dismissed from the water by the tutor. Since the tutor is at all times responsible only for the children in the water, and since classes are consecutive, S.O.S. Swim School shall not be responsible for children on the poolside, before or after their lesson, in the changing room, including those obliged to leave the water during the lesson. Thus parents absenting themselves from the pool premises during their child’s lesson do so at their own risk.
