Did you know that 276 lost their lives to drowning in Australia last year?

As we head into warmer weather let’s work together to keep our children safe. Please make sure you actively supervise your children at the Centre. That means being in the water with them if they are under 5 or weak swimmers. For older children please watch them at all times and avoid distractions such as mobile phones.

Below are prevention strategies of drowning from Royal Life Saving:

  • Active supervision by parents or carers of children
  • Be aware of pre-existing medical conditions
    and physical limitations
  • Understand the possible adverse effects of
    medications
  • Follow safety rules displayed around the pool area
  • Follow directions issued by staff and lifeguards
  • Inform a lifeguard if a non-swimmer, or of any
    relevant medical conditions
  • Learn swimming and water safety skills (find out about our BlueFit Swimming program here)

You can see Royal Life Saving’s 10 Year Analysis on Drowning here for more information.
