Last week we held our bi-annual Water Safety Week !
We pride ourselves on keeping the local community safe and educating students about how to swim safely. A key element to our program is our Water Safety Week. We believe that it is critical for our families and communities to be reminded of the importance of being safe and vigilant around water. BlueFit is committed to the safety of our communities and we need your help to ensure our message and skills are passed on to all children and extended families for a safer community.
This year BlueFit Swimming asked students to come dressed up in their pyjamas. Throughout the week, staff taught water safety specific lessons, that focused on water safety skills such as floating, treading water, basic rescue techniques and much more!
It was amazing to see all of our families and students rocking up in their pyjamas and attending throughout the week, engaging with staff and classmates. We look forward to seeing you all again at our next fun-filled safety week events in November 2023!

All preschool and school age children need to bring their pyjamas (top and shorts are acceptable) to swim in during their swimming lesson.
