Open Day fun for the whole family

7 November 2017

Twenty-three endorsed swim schools across the State have thrown open their doors to encourage all West Australian kids to learn to Swim and Survive. The Swim School Open Days have  been taking place in the lead-up to summer, with activities including free swim assessments, so parents can better understand what stage their child is at and enroll accordingly.

It’s all part of a bigger plan to ensure that all WA children learn vital swimming and water safety skills.

As part of the Open Days, parents and students have been able to have a look at the pool and centre facilities in their local area, participate in a free swimming assessment, as well as many other fun activities and giveaways. Dippy Duck and Walter the Watch Dog also made regular appearances, and proved to be a hit with the kids!
