The LSV Swimming and Water Safety Team are excited to announce the launch of the NEW! ‘Swimming and Water Safety Toolkit’ webpage; home to free resources, support information and case studies for delivering quality schools swimming and water safety programs. Content will continue to be added to the toolkit on-going, so we encourage you to keep checking the webpage for fresh ideas and updated support resources.
Throughout Term 2 and 3, the team will deliver a suite of state-wide professional development workshops and accredited training courses to assist schools and aquatic facilities enhance their current swimming and water safety programs. Check out the events calendar on the Toolkit webpage to view dates and enrol.
Please take the opportunity to share the Swimming and Water Safety Toolkit and Events Calendar with your school’s network. These courses, workshops and resources will help both the aquatic facilities and schools ensure they are on the same page when it comes to swimming and water safety. The Public Water Safety Initiative is funded by the Victorian Government.
If your facility is delivering swimming and water safety programs, don’t forget to also provide students, who achieved the competencies, with the Victorian Water Safety Certificate. The certificate is free of charge for schools and aquatic facilities to order and provides students with official acknowledgement of their achievement. The Swimming and Water Safety Team would love to hear from those of you who have awarded students with the certificate, in particular the recognition and celebrations which accompanied. If you have a unique story to share which we could profile, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
