Superhero Safety Week

A special event all about 'saving lives'.

Superhero Safety Week aims to build ongoing awareness in our young students 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 this theme of ‘saving lives’ with heroic figures they admire such as Superhero’s and Life Guards, kids are far more engaged and in turn will offer a more active participation. This content will be delivered during normal lesson times for students in Seals level and above.

Note: This change to lesson plans excludes Dog Paddlers level, which is already heavily focused on safety fundamentals.


Event date: October 16 – 22

Cost: Free

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)
