Shayna Gavin, Splash Principal Physiotherapist
An exciting new teaching role
Just a little new to share, that I'm excited to be starting a new teaching role at RMIT in Melbourne.
I am developing and delivering the aquatic physiotherapy units for their first Allied Health Assistants course.
It's an exciting opportunity as, to our knowledge, these units havn't been included in Allied Health Assistant courses in Australia before.
Some of our Splash Physiotherapy treatment sessions will be affected in the first 2 weeks of term 3 for this block's teaching and assessment days. I have negotiated the teaching timetable to have the minimum effect upon our families possible. I have started to contact those families who are affected to offer make up sessions. I thank you for your understanding and patience, and will do my best to accommodate your busy timetables for make up spots :-)
