Learn to Swim Week 2017

Learn to Swim Week 2017 will be held during the September school holidays from Sept 23 – Oct 2.

It will be kick-started by Learn to Swim Day on Saturday, 23rd September.

It is an inaugural awareness week aimed at educating parents on the importance of teaching kids aged under five to swim. It’s also about reminding everyone about the importance of water safety. The aim is to give every child in Australia and New Zealand aged under five the opportunity to learn to swim! Worldwide, drowning is the number one cause of accidental death in children under 5 years of age. In Australia, one person on average drowns every week. Teaching a child to swim early is the best prevention.

During Learn to Swim Week, FREE swim lessons are offered to children aged under five at participating swim schools across the country. Moss Vale Aquatic Centre is proud to be taking part in this great initiative. You can register your child (5 years and under) for FREE Learn to Swim lessons at Moss Vale during by visiting http://www.learntoswimweek.com.au because “learning to swim is the best prevention” Laurie Lawrence – Swim Safety Ambassador.
