Safety Week

BE READY Edition

Safety Week aims to build ongoing awareness for our young students and their families, about staying safe in and around the water. This message is not only limited to pools, but also extends to other various water environments we encounter such as beaches, rivers, dams and even bath time. With hundreds of young lives still being lost to water each year through preventable accidents, we look to continue creating safe and confident children in our students.

This pop-up week of fun, safety driven content assists children to develop a variety of skills and thinking to help keep themselves safe. By linking the theme of ‘safety’ with the water-based activities children love, we aim to drive timely education and awareness leading into the upcoming Summer season. This content will be delivered during normal lesson times for students in Seals level and above.


Event date: August 19-25, 2019

Cost: No extra cost

What to bring: A change of clothes to swim in (children in ‘Seals’┬álevel and above will do a clothed safety swim during their lesson)

Special Lesson Plans

A special lesson plan has been developed for the week to introduce students in Seals level and above to new skills and thinking around water safety. These learnings will be timely as many families head off on holidays this Easter to lakeside and riverside destinations.
