Kylie Aubrey, Teacher (Parua Bay)

Our family are so grateful to have peace of mind and know that Tracy and her team at Parua Bay Skids are taking great care of our kids. Their programme ensures there are lots of different activities available, and plan great things for the holiday program too. My kids look forward to attending which is fantastic, thanks so much.
