Swim Safe Week
The week of Monday the 28th of November until the 4th of December we are running a water safety and awareness week. We are going to make it fun by having a PJ Party. All the swimmers are encouraged to wear pyjamas over their bathers, so that they can experience what it feels like if they accidently fall into the water fully clothed.
We cover the following areas during the week:
- Safety rules in and around water
- Life jacket practice
- Goggle free practice
- Safe water entries
- Survival strokes
- How to tread clothed
- How to signal for help and assistance
- How to use objects to perform a rescue
We aim to give our swimmers the best survival skills possible.
