Water Skills For Life Workshops

Water Safety NZ provide funding to Swimming New Zealand to provide Water Skills for Life to primary schools throughout the country. It is now the national standard for aquatic education in all New Zealand primary schools, with the focus on preventing drowning fatalities and to help kiwis develop skills to be safe in, on and around water. It is linked into the national education curriculum and gives children the skills and knowledge they need to assess risk and make smart decisions around water, providing them with the skills to survive.
