Almost 60 Liverpool local women participated in a 10-week swimming and water safety education program, wrapping up Term 2 with the last session as a CPR awareness course at the Michael Wenden Aquatic Leisure Centre.
Thanks to the support of Liverpool Council and the Belgravia Foundation, Royal Life Saving provided the funding to deliver the program to women aged 25 to 55 that were predominantly from Arabic and Urdu backgrounds. The recent graduates now possess the fundamental swimming skills and knowledge for future water activities and help support the community in growing this vital lifelong skill.
“It was great to see all the women come back every week and enjoy coming back for each lesson, watching them grow this skill, some of whom never have been in the water before,” said Ying Fan, RLS Cultural Coordinator.
“We received incredibly positive feedback and the urge for more lessons like this in this area.”
Our team was present for the CPR course on the last day of the program, presenting all the graduates with their certificates of completion.
Enrolments are now open for the following Term 3, starting 21 July – contact us today if you wish to be a part of the program or would like to find out more info.
