Swimming and Water Safety

​Swimming and Water Safety

Burnie Pool 

The Tasmanian Department of Education ensures every child in state schools has an equal opportunity to participate in quality swimming and water safety instruction. Each student in years 3, 4 and 5 in all primary schools has an opportunity to participate in ten consecutive periods of Swimming and Water Safety annually.

Students currently take part in a 10-day program at Government-owned and private swimming pools. As well as teaching students to swim, the program also develops an understanding of water safety, survival and swimming practices to ensure that water-based activities are enjoyable, rewarding and safe.
