We are also actively raising water safety awareness, educating local communities and celebrating all that is healthy swimming activity with the below programs:

Swim for Fruit

The Go for 2 and 5 Regional and Remote Aboriginal Communities Swimming Program (or Swim for Fruit) provides support for an after school and weekend lap swimming program and the expansion of the school-based Swim and Survive programs in regional and remote communities. Children who complete a set number of laps in a session are rewarded with an afternoon tea of fresh fruit and healthy treats.

Heart Beat Club

The Heart Beat Club is a community education initiative of Royal Life Saving that is designed to provide parents, grandparents and carers of children with the skills to provide first aid and resuscitation to infants and children in and around the home, or when around water.

Approximately 55 children between the ages of 0-5 drown annually in Australia alone – that's an average of one child per week. Lives are lost in pools, fish ponds, baths, sinks and even nappy buckets. These lives could be saved utilising the skills learned in a three-hour Heart Beat Club course.
