Why You Should Choose JC Swim School for Your Swimming Education Needs

Dunedin’s oldest and most awarded swim school is the family-orientated JC Swim School.

Founded by Jill Clarke, the school allows children (and adults) to progress at their own pace. Emphasis is on fun but the school aims to teach skills that will increase anyone’s chance of survival in emergency situations.

Our teachers are chosen for their ability to connect with youngsters. They nurture in their charges a love of learning and the motivation to swim well.

With locations across Dunedin and in Mosgiel, JC Swim offers a range of programmes for all ages and abilities during all four school terms, and during holidays.


The JC Swim School instructors are highly qualified, exceptionally trained and regularly recognised with awards.

Jill Clarke has been awarded the Swimming New Zealand Honors Award, NZSTCA Outstanding Service to Swimming Award and the Nan Nevin (Master Swim Teacher) Award.

Swim Coaches and Teachers of New Zealand (NZSCAT) named JC Swim School the Outstanding Swim School in 2014, a national award.

Aleisha Clarke, JC Swim’s Manager, won NZSCTA Rookie Swim Teacher in 2010 and Swim Teacher of the Year 2014, Nan Nevin Master Swim Teacher 2023.

Senior instructor, Becky Oswald, was awarded NZSCTA Rookie Teacher of 2014. Rookie Swim Teacher awards have also been given to Dylan Pearson (2015), Jess Tisdall (2016) and Keegan Taig (2016).
