Mingara Aquatics Instructor – Benita

By Binns Rebecca


  • Austswim Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety
  • Royal Life Saving Resuscitation & CPR


I am a Mum with three children, aged between 7 and 12, who enjoys swimming lessons. I was an Early Childhood Teacher in primary schools and early childhood centres before starting my family.

What do you love about Learn to Swim?

The opportunity to teach children a lifelong skill, especially in an area where water is such a big part of living.

A tip for your first lesson

Come a little bit earlier for your first lesson and watch some of the other children in their lessons. You can chat about the activities they are doing and the equipment they are using. Just be mindful that there will be different swimming levels happening, but you can talk about ‘what they can already do’ and ‘what they will learn to do’.
