Bendigo Bank have generously continued their support of the Royal Life Saving SwimVac program for the second consecutive year. At a time when swimming lessons for children is a hot topic of discussion due to swim teacher shortages; access to lessons for children after several years of COVID and drowning rates at an alarmingly high level, this is a crucial time to ensure kids in regional towns can access essential Swimming and Water safety lessons.

With the generous support of Bendigo bank and the NSW Government, the SwimVac program will deliver lessons across almost 50 regional pools throughout NSW. The funds provided by Bendigo Bank will provide essential equipment and resources including Swim Teachers to these pools.,

About the Royal Life Saving SwimVac Program:

Royal Life Saving’s SwimVAC program is a Swimming and Water Safety holiday program delivered over 5 or 10 days of lessons.

Aligned to the National Swimming and Water Safety Framework, SwimVAC programs encompass nationally recognised swimming and water safety benchmarks teaching swimming and personal safety skills to children of all skill abilities.

SwimVAC is targeted at children from 3- 14 years of age with the aim of getting as many children as possible to the 6- and 12-year-old national benchmarks for swimming and water safety.
