Kids learn key water skills
THE 2018 VacSwim program will con-
clude at the Gawler Aquatic Centre today,
having taught children basic swimming,
water safety and important survival tech-
A total of 144 children were enrolled in
this year's local program, which ran from
last Tuesday, January 2, and was slightly
down on last year's high attendance level

Gawler Mayor Karen Redman said the
VacSwim program was one of several pro-

The Gawler Aquatic Centre's popular
Learn to Swim program, kicking off for
term one on Monday, January 29, achieved
record enrolments last term, and in the past
four seasons has seen enrolments increase
by 130 per cent.
"This significant increase in program en-
rolments shows how popular the Gawler
Aquatic Centre's Learn to Swim program is
and how parents and caregivers understand
the importance of their children learning
lifelong swimming and water safety skills,"
Mrs Redman said.
Last year, the Gawler Aquatic Centre
was named the 2017 Watch Around Water
Community Innovation award winner at
the Recreation SA, Parks and Leisure State
The leading national education and pub-
lic awareness-raising program addresses
the supervision of young children at public
swimming pools, and ensures public swim-
ming pools are a safe venue for the commu-
nity to participate in sport and recreation.
The Education Department's Water Safe-
ty program also provides local primary
schoolchildren with over 9000 water safety
lessons each season.
