Canterbury Swim School Facebook

Nationally experienced and accredited coaches, Huia Mikara and Jenny Jones, and businessman Chris Hurley, recognised the western area of Christchurch had been about as dry as the proverbial desert for a long time. There wasn’t a sizeable indoor aquatic facility in the area, so they built the Waitaha Aquatic Centre, and established Canterbury Swim School.

Our creative team incorporated the Maori aspect into the design of their logo, and came up with a professional and classy feel for Canterbury Swim School, while remaining fun at the same time.

Huia and Jenny have 47 years of coaching between them, and are proud to have their Canterbury Swim School recognised as a Gold Status Quality Swim School, by Swimming New Zealand. To learn more about swimming lessons, for yourself or your child, visit
