Tasman District Council supporting swimming and water safety education.

 

Teaching our tamariki & rangatahi in our community how to be safe in and around our waterways is an integral part of our school group’s programme. Through a recent community grant from Tasman District Council, we have been able to purchase new lifejackets, which means we can increase the number of children coming in and experiencing lifejackets and how to use them correctly through our school and water safety programmes run here by SwimMagic at the Richmond Aquatic Centre.

Pictured is a recent group of children from Richmond School who have been learning how to correctly put on a lifejacket, float into the water alone and how to correctly work together in group situations to maintain body heat and stay together in the water in a huddle. 

These skills give our community the best possible chances for safety and survival in, on and around all the beautiful waterways in our region.
