The arrival of summer and the good weather that accompanies it leaves parents wondering what to do with their children. Safety in a supervised environment is offered by the Bubbles Swimming School Holiday Club which takes place on December 8 and 9 and then from the 12th to 16th.
With venues for both outdoor fun and indoor swimming activities, Bubbles Swim School combines fun activities with swimming and safety lessons to educate the youngsters.
“We live in a country where we love to be outdoors and, living at the coast, outdoors includes playing in water,” says Lerryn Mew, Bubbles Swim School instructor. “Any time children or inexperienced people are near bodies of water, safety should always be high on the list of priorities.”
“During the 2014/2015 season, the National Sea Rescue Institute were called out 643 times and rescued 760 people. The 2015/2016 festive season saw them involved in 123 rescues, saving 141 people and between 1 December 2015 to 21 January this year there were 22 drownings. Water safety cannot be stressed enough.”
In order to learn proper water safety and swimming techniques, young swimmers should be taught by qualified instructors, rather than simply adopting the bad habits of their parents.
“There are structured beach activities, swimming activities and recreational play, with the option for taking it indoors if the weather is bad,” says Mew. “We are at the start of the festive season and the best way to ensure a good summer is to keep safe and stay smart.”
