PYJAMA SAFETY WEEK

soulroll 14/03/2023

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!

“Safety Week runs twice a year at selected BlueFit Swimming locations.”

Water Safety Week is an entire week dedicated to educating our students with essential water safety skills.

The Next Safety Week event will be in November 2023. More details and date is TBC. 

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

All infants and parents or caregivers need to both bring a t-shirt to wear during swimming lessons.

This is imperative as we simulate swimming in clothing and what swimming techniques could help save your child’s life.

Superhero Safety Week 2022 Recap

soulroll 08/12/2022

Superhero Safety Week was a success! During November, we held our bi-annual Safety Week, but this time as Superheroes!

The week of the 14th to the 20th of November was dedicated to educating our students on all things water safety. Preparing students for the upcoming summer season. Safety Week is an initiative that we have incorporated into our broader program to ensure that the basic water safety skills are taught to all students across Australia. Throughout the week the learn to swim program is slightly altered to meet these intentions. Safety Week is important as students:

  • Learn the safest part on where to swim at the beach.
  • Learn life saving skills such as floating, survival backstroke and freestyle.
  • Practice swimming without goggles.
  • Understand what it feels like falling into the water with clothes on.
  • Learn how to call for help when in the water.
  • Learn how to perform a reach and throw rescue.

It was wonderful to see all of our families and students (aka. superheroes) attending throughout the week, engaging with staff and classmates. Have a safe summer, and we look forward to seeing you all again at our next fun-filled safety week events in 2023!
