The 4 swim schools in Canterbury Bankstown will also partner with Royal Life Saving to ensure best practices and access to a range of resources including our brand-new Multicultural Communities Portal that provides an array of translated resources to their patrons.
“This is a great opportunity for facilities and operators in the industry to demonstrate their commitment to ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for their customers and staff. The partnership offers us the opportunity at CB City, to proactively plan out the whole year in a more structure way in terms of budget, audits, assessments and training. I commend Royal Life on their response to the needs of the industry with initiatives like this” said Ben Ellison-Kubecka, Manager of Leisure & Aquatic Services | CB City.
Facilities interested in becoming an Aquatic Safety Partner are offered the benefit of prebooking their training and services for the year with Royal Life Saving, as well as receiving a discount by packaging up these services.
