As part of our Talent Pool partnership with Newman Senior High School we’re ensuring local teachers have the skills they need to not only supervise their students in water activities, but also to conduct Bronze Medallion training themselves.Newman teachers practising CPR skills

Cameron took a group of teachers from the Newman Senior High School, Primary School and Clontarf Academy through their paces in a Bronze Medallion course recently, which they thoroughly enjoyed and completed with flying colours! The participants, including teachers and education assistants will now feel confident as they provide a variety of aquatic activities for their students over the coming months.

Some of the upcoming educational activities that the Newman students are due to participate in include Physical Education Classes at the pool, Outdoor Education Camps, Clontarf Academy Camps, Pool excursions and a whole lot more.

Talent Pool is a key element of Royal Life Saving WA’s work in regional communities and strives to engage young people in activities that ultimately result in them achieving job opportunities in the aquatic industry and beyond. We’re pleased to see the local Newman teachers so engaged in aquatic education, as this will enable them to share their in water skills and experience with their students, inspiring them to take on the aquatic training opportunities Talent Pool provides.

Our Talent Pool program in Newman is supported by Principal Community Partner BHP. You can read more about our partnership with Newman Senior High School at the link below.
