Kids in our learn to swim program were treated to morning tea with bright cupcakes and fun props in celebration of Swim and Survive turning 40!
Our RLS Denistone East Aquatic Academy welcomed parents, kids and staff to take part in the celebration, honouring the vital swimming and water safety program that began back in 1982.
This amazing program has contributed to the reduction of drowning statistics, particularly for primary school children aged 5 to 14 years as well as providing the skills and knowledge required for a lifetime of active and safe aquatic recreation.
NSW, ACT and Tasmania have over 30 active Swim and Survive Partners, and numbers are growing as the new program was introduced earlier this year. Latest research conducted by RLS National Society will also lead to a new Adult Swim and Survive curriculum to be released later this year.
All our partners are encouraged to participate during the official celebration time this week from 23 – 29 May and share their best snaps with us!
