NEVER content to sit back and be comfortable is one reason Forrestdale small business Seadragonz Swim School has been nominated as a finalist in a national business , according to owner Lari McDonald.

The learn to swim school, which has been operating since 2007, is a finalist in the Champion Educational Services category for the 2016 Australian Small Business Champion Awards being held by Precedent Productions in Sydney on April 23.

“Seadragonz Swim School will represent the local community at this event,” event managing director Steve Lowe said.

“Their passion, dedication, commitment and hard work will be recognised and celebrated among their peers in an experience they will never forget.”

Ms McDonald said it was “an honour and a buzz for the amazing team of people at Seadragonz” to be recognised nationally.

“We have never been content to stick with industry norms and have always sought to lead and be at the front of the industry, preferring to be the pioneers of mass followers rather than one of the masses that follow someone else,” she said.

Ms McDonald said it was awesome that the business was nominated after winning the Excellence in Small Business award at the Business Armadale awards last year.

“This recognition inspires Seadragonz to keep researching and learning to provide the best learn to swim facility possible,” she said.
