To ensure that more Victorian students participate in vital water safety and lifesaving programs, LSV’s Education Team actively seek opportunities to provide our education programs Open Water Learning Experience and Sink or Swim at subsidised/no cost to participants.
Last year 4000+ students participated in LSV’s education programs with thanks to year’s funders and partners below who generously subsidised travel, covered participation costs, offered additional staff support on programs or alleviated venue and equipment fees.
- Brimbank City Council
- City of Wodonga

This is in addition to ongoing support from the Victorian Government’s ‘PlayIt Safe by the Water’ campaign and the RLSSA and Federal Government’s Inland Waterways Drowning Prevention Fund ‘Respect the River’ campaign.
This year we are already partnering with or received funding from numerous council areas across Victoria which are highlighted below. Focus areas of these programs include removing barriers for students with intellectual and physical disability, student groups from low socio-economic backgrounds and regional schools.
- Mount Alexander Shire
- City of Manningham
- Golden Plain Shire
