Risk Management and Emergency Evacuation

As an element of booking an aquatic program, school/event personnel are required to undertake and document a risk assessment and create an action plan that all personnel involved in the program are trained in.
Belgravia Leisure has documented emergency action and evacuation plans. Staff are trained regularly in implementation. In the event of an emergency please follow all directions of Chief and Area Wardens.


We welcome parents and families into the centre to support children at swimming carnivals. A small fee will be charged upon entry, schools/event personnel can arrange during the booking process to have this fee invoiced and charged back to the school/hirer.
