We believe that teaching basic safety and survival skills is a vital component of swimming education, so a SwimSAFER week is run in every term.
We focus on various themes each term and these are presented in a format appropriate for the age and skill level of each class. Our aim is to make all swimmers, as well as the parents, more aware of the dangers associated with water and water activities, and to provide skills to cope if accidents do occur. All this will be done through fun, songs and games. Some of the themes that we have are:
- Boating Safety
- Rivers, Lakes & Dams
- Beach Safety
- Swimming in Clothes
During Term 4 we participate in the National Energy Australia Swim Safer Week and incorporate their important messages into our SwimSAFER program.
