So, it’s no surprise that more than 2000 people came along to the Active Armadale open day on Saturday, to celebrate the re-opening of the new and improved aquatic centre!Royal Life Saving staff at an information stand

A team from Royal Life Saving WA was in attendance throughout the event, to provide information to the local community about swimming and water safety education, first aid and training. RLSSWA also engaged members of the community with CPR and rope throw rescue demonstrations, with many attendees trying their hand at both.

Armadale Aquatic Centre is part of our Endorsed Swim School network, providing the Infant Aquatics and Swim & Survive programs. Swim School staff were working overtime providing assessment information for customers looking to enroll in lessons starting on the 25th March 2019.

Thanks to the City of Armadale’s Annual Contribution Fund, Royal Life Saving WA looks forward to being able to re-engage the community in swimming and water safety education, to ensure they can safely enjoy activities in, on or around the water.
