School Life - Sink or Swim

Life Saving Victoria visited CAGS and presented the ‘Sink Or Swim’ program to the Prep to Year 6 students last week.
The students learnt about water safety from an experienced lifesaver. This interactive program empowers young people to keep themselves and others safe in all caustic environments through engaging practical activities. Which is very relevant to us here living in the country where we need to remember to be safe around our river beaches, at the creek, around our farm dams & channels and of course local and backyard swimming pools.

The students learnt the following water safety messages:

  • Be aware and be prepared
  • Always read the safety signs
  • Always swim between the flags
  • Never swim alone
  • Check it’s OK to swim - learn the conditions look before you leap
  • Wear a life jacket
