Water Safety & Learn to Swim
We support water safety throughout our programme by:
- For babies and preschoolers - teaching the tamariki and their parents about water hazards and how to behave around water as well as taking their first splash into learning to swim
- For school age children - incorporating key water safety skills into our learn to swim programme
- For adults - supporting learners of any age to grow their confidence as well as their swim skills, making sure they learn the best way to keep themselves and their families safe in the water
In Term 4 2020 we will be launching our new snorkel safety programme. Designed to teach vital safety skills for the open water, our first lessons are being delivered free of charge to local schools courtesy of our funding partner.
