It's important for children to learn & practice water safety, learn to swim & develop/ regain swimming fittness before summer and the Christmas New Year holidays.

as a swimming teacher I don't understand how 3 weeks of teaching will help reduce pre-school drowning that the government produced $100 vouchers to help prevent . I also can't see how gym classes is less risky than teaching children with 3 for a class

Swimming lesson should be back and running. We don't want our children drowning in pools or lakes or beaches. We need lessons and our kids lives back to normal. It's not fair that people get to go back to the gym, sweating everywhere and putting body fluids all over everything and our kids got get their swimming lessons back ! Wake up people kids need to know how to swim.

Not only is the health and safety of our children at risk, government assistance is ceasing before the aquatic industry is going to recommence…. There will be so many learn to swim teachers, coaches, employees and business owners, without financial assistance for 6-8weeks

This doesn’t make any sense and is incredibly unfair. Get our kids back in the water sooner.

With the weather heating up and kids in lockdown with backyard pools, swimming lessons have never been more important to prevent drowning.
