EKASINOMICS: A new swimming school in Orlando East is offering hope.

Tumi Masekela – founder of Soweto Swim School talks about a new swimming school in Orlando east.

Swim School Soweto, a registered school based in Orlando East was founded by Tumi and has been in operation since November 7, 2020.

Parents with children as young as 2 years old, adults and senior citizens can expect to be taught by highly qualified and experienced black swimming coaches in a heated indoor 10x5m pool.

Tumi’s dream to launch the Soweto Swim school was prompted by the swim school that she had enrolled her children in back when she lived in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg. When she returned to Soweto and saw how many children swam in dirty dams, she decided to act. She constructed a pool in her backyard that she has now dedicated for swimming lessons. 

Lessons are 45 minutes each and start at R300 per month for children and R450 for adults.

Tumi and her team are thrilled to host you and your families in their safe, Covid-19 free school.

Contact the Soweto Swim School through the following details

Address: 4350, Ballanden Street, Orlando East, Soweto
