Example: Comprehensive

A typical class might include 22 kids, eighteen of whom end up in the pool and the session would cost 18 kids x $20 per kids plus a dollar for GST for a total of $378.

Example: Basic

A typical class might include 25 kids, twenty of whom up in the pool and the session would cost 20 kids  x $16.8/kid for a total of $336.

Example: Basic with Twelve Students

With only twelve kids, the minimum is paid at 15 kids for a total of 15 x $16.80 = $252
