Aquasafe is a unique water safety and awareness program designed specifically for Year 2 students in the ACT. The concept of the program was developed as a joint initiative between Royal Life Saving ACT and the ACT Government Education and Training Directorate. Participation for the program is partially funded by the ACT Government. This funding increases accessibility and affordability of the program for all students.
The program consists of a 2-week (10-day) block of pool-based sessions and 5 x 40 minute classroom sessions. Royal Life Saving ACT is responsible for the organisation and facilitation of the pool sessions, including transport, for all ACT primary schools and has developed a Teacher Resource for the delivery of the classroom sessions.
Aquasafe is different from traditional learn to swim programs in that it focusses specifically on water safety skills and knowledge that can be applied to a range of aquatic environments. Aquasafe complements existing learn to swim programs and supports children to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding to avoid danger and prevent death in and around water.
