Safety week

Once each school term we dedicate a full week to safety in and around aquatic environments, following the guidelines from Royal Life Saving’s swim and survive programs.  Children are encouraged to participate by answering questions, and learning different survival skills. During this week children take part in circuits that involve wearing a personal flotation device, use various flotation aids like balls and eskys, perform basic rescues using clothing and towels, tread water and learn to swim through currents. Contact us to find out which week these sessions will be run.
