Book your school into Canterbury’s Swim Safety Program

Posted on Tuesday, 10 March 2020

Canterbury League Club, in partnership with Canterbury-Bankstown Council and Royal Life Saving NSW, would like to invite all Year 4 students of local government primary schools to participate in our Canterbury Aquatic Survival Skills Program 2020.

The initiative, currently in its fourth year running, has been designed by industry experts to specifically introduce and equip students with vital water safety skills in order to help them build confidence and pass on the importance of being water smart.

Canterbury will be funding 100% of program costs including return bus transport to and from the Roselands Leisure and Aquatic Centre.

The Canterbury Aquatic Survival Skills Program will be held during Week 7 – 10 of Term 3 (Monday 31 Aug to Friday 25 Sept 2020). Every school will receive two full 2-hour sessions at the pool with each session addressing potentially lifesaving water skills such as safe entry and exit, sculling and throw/reach rescues.

This is then followed up with a dry interactive session teaching student how to recognise and avoid danger in a range of aquatic environments. Students will have the opportunity to try on life jackets, practice signalling for help, performing dry rescues, etc.

Interested schools can contact to book their students in.
