Safety Week is upon us, and this year BlueFit Swimming are asking students to come dressed up in their favourite pyjamas! Safety Week lessons focus on water safety skills such as floating, treading water, basic rescue techniques and more.
Why is Safety Week Important?
The Royal Life Saving annual drowning report sadly recorded 248 people lost their lives due to drowning in 2020.
As one of Australia’s largest swim school providers, we feel BlueFit has the responsibility to our communities to deliver a service that not only emphasises the importance of learning to swim but also the skills to be safe and aware in and around water.
Safety Week provides us with the opportunity to include additional skills into the swimming program which could ultimately save a child’s life.
What do you need to bring?
All preschool and school-age children need to bring shorts and t-shirts to swim in during their swimming lesson.
All infants and parents or caregivers need to bring a t-shirt to wear during swimming lessons.
This is imperative as we simulate swimming in clothing and what swimming techniques could help save your child’s life.
