                  Every summer, our pools offer some lessons that will run weekly, rather than daily (as most summer lessons do).
                                    The following chart notes the starts & end dates of these weekly lessons.
                    Weekly lessons are listed in colour, bold and Italic. Please note, Angus Glen Pool, Morgan Park Pool and
                       Thornlea Pool offer only Saturday / Sunday weekly lessons. For more information, call your local pool.
