Swimsmart and Beach Education
Swimsmart programme is undertaken on alternate years to the Beach Education programme in the Year 5 and Year 6 area of our school.
The Swimsmart programme is run by instructors who give an intensive weeklong instruction with a focus on swimming skills and water confidence in pools and around water.
The Beach Education programme is run by trained lifeguards from a Surf Lifesaving Club with parental assistance. The aim is to teach children about being safe when at the beach, how to identify rips, give children skills and knowledge they need to be safe both in and out of the water in a beach environment.
