Superhero Safety Week starts Monday 18th November!

Safety Week is upon us, and this year BlueFit Swimming are asking students to come dressed up as their favourite Superhero!

Safety Week is an important initiative that takes place during your regular swimming lessons. Within the lesson there will be a focus on water safety skills such as floating, survival sequences, treading water, survival strokes and basic rescue techniques.

We encourage all students to bring shorts and t-shirts to swim in during their swimming lesson. Infants are encouraged to wear a t-shirt, parents and caregivers are also encouraged to wear a shirt. This creates a real life scenario, if your child is in an accident they will be in clothes. We want to ensure your child is prepared and safe this summer.

Don’t be alarmed by the changes, these skills are simply to offer additional focus on water safety and education in a fun environment. In the end we want to provide the best possible water safety outcomes for your child. Safety week provides us with the opportunity to focus on skills which could ultimately save a child’s life.

We will also be giving out prizes for the best dressed students! We look forward to seeing our little superheros!

What is Safety Week?

Safety Week is an important initiative that takes place during your regular swimming lessons. During Safety Week students will learn various safety skills. We encourage all parents to bring clothes their child can swim in to enhance the quality of learning.

Why is Safety Week Important?

The Royal Life Saving annual drowning report sadly recorded 276 people lost their lives due to drowning in 2019. As one of Australia’s largest swim school providers, we feel BlueFit has the responsibility to our communities to deliver a service that not only emphasises the importance of learning to swim, but also the skills to be safe and aware in and around water.

Safety week provides us with the opportunity to include additional skills into the swimming program which could ultimately save a child’s life.

What do you need to bring?

All preschool and school age children need to bring shorts and t-shirts to swim in during their swimming lesson. All infants and parents or care givers 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.

For more information about the program contact enquiries@bluefitswimming.com.au or please give us a call or speak to one of our friendly staff at the centre.

Did you know that 276 lost their lives to drowning in Australia last year?

As we head into warmer weather let’s work together to keep our children safe. Please make sure you actively supervise your children at the Centre. That means being in the water with them if they are under 5 or weak swimmers. For older children please watch them at all times and avoid distractions such as mobile phones.

Below are prevention strategies of drowning from Royal Life Saving:

  • Active supervision by parents or carers of children
  • Be aware of pre-existing medical conditions
    and physical limitations
  • Understand the possible adverse effects of
    medications
  • Follow safety rules displayed around the pool area
  • Follow directions issued by staff and lifeguards
  • Inform a lifeguard if a non-swimmer, or of any
    relevant medical conditions
  • Learn swimming and water safety skills (find out about our BlueFit Swimming program here)

You can see Royal Life Saving’s 10 Year Analysis on Drowning here for more information.

There’s so much information about what you should and shouldn’t be eating when living a healthy lifestyle that it’s easy to get lost! We want to make it simpler for you, which is why we’ve found the top 5 foods that are surprisingly healthy for you.

Dark Chocolate:

If you’re eating chocolate that contains over 70% cocoa, consider it as healthy! As it’s high in antioxidants, fibre and vitamins and minerals, dark chocolate has a number of health benefits for you.

Popcorn:

Unfortunately, it’s not the same cinema popcorn that’s drowned in butter… but air-popped popcorn is high in fibre and contains multiple vitamins and minerals!

Avocado:

It’s often misunderstood that avocados are actually healthy for you. Although they are high in fat, it is ‘heart-healthy’ fat that is rich in nutrients containing up to 20 vitamins and minerals. It’s important to consume with moderation!

Potatoes:

If you minimise the toppings, potatoes on their own provide are a nutritious, inexpensive food that offers strong sources of potassium and fibre.

Coffee:

You’ll be pleased to know, a coffee a day has been linked to a longer lifespan! It is high in antioxidants that protect you against a variety of diseases and can help prevent diabetes and strokes.

So next time you want a snack that’s healthy, be sure to consider one of the above. Just remember… it’s all about BALANCE!
