Blue Haven Home / Blue Haven / Blue Haven Pools supports proposed water safety syllabus
Blue Haven swimming pools applauds a proposed water safety syllabus set to be rolled out to at least 10, 000 early learning centres Australia-wide in a push to cut child drownings.
Legendary Olympic swimming coach and Kids Alive founder Laurie Lawrence has secured $429, 000 funding from the Australian Government to develop a mandatory water safety curriculum that would be taught in early childhood education and care settings.
The new syllabus will feature water safety information, books, songs, posters and DVDs to teach toddlers and children under five the dangers of water.
The program will teach all aspects of water safety.
Blue Haven Pools CEO Remonda Martinez says the program is essential for the Australian lifestyle.
“The backyard swimming pool is something that is desired by most Australian families and keeping everyone safe is paramount, ” Mrs Remonda says.
“Programs such as this will send a safety message out to young children which is so important. We applaud Laurie Lawrence for all that he has done for water safety in this country.”
The water safety syllabus would eventually be rolled out to every early learning centre in Australia and its development would be overseen by three university professors to ensure the correct teaching method.
It is expected the materials will be finalised by mid 2013.

Hi all! My ninja motor was opened up today.2010-02-04 16:57:14 by Ninjabella
I haven't heard the verdict of what needs to be done, but my furnace motor has to be replaced in my house. I'm thinking that's not a good omen.
Had a great time riding a great bike, the FJ1200, on the West Coast last week. Saw herds of elk, bald eagles fishing, rode through the blue-green part of a rainbow, and sat in lovely hot spring pools overlooking the mountains.
Only snow piles here and no riding. *sigh*
Big mofo ((hugs))). Have a great night. Bye o/~
