The focus of our Aquatic Survival Skills program is to invest in our own backyard - reaching children and teachers through our local schools. Our program is affordable (free) and has more ‘touch points’ than any other water-based program to support teachers and students learning.
With your support and funds we can continue presenting our program barrier free throughout all four school terms, reach more schools and expand into our next targeted year group, of years 3 & 4 alongside our year 5 & 6 age groups.
