Being in Australia, we are very blessed with beautiful beaches and water bodies to enjoy all around the country. With summer fast approaching, we cannot emphasise enough how important it is to be safe around water.

We, at Swan Active, are passionate about water safety and believe that it is an important skill to have regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or abilities. As part of SwimSAFER Week which runs from November 18 – 24, all swimming classes will have an emphasis on water safety through educational activities and games. Swimmers are encouraged to come dressed in clothes that they can swim in for their lesson and have a great time learning about being safe around water.

Water Safety is something we try to promote in the community when ever possible. We are active in the community providing talks to new mum’s through health care nurses as well as directly to preschool and kindergarten children. If you would like any resources or would like further information please do not hesitate to ask our swim school supervisors next time you are in centre.
