Kwinana Recquatic extends swimming program

Cecilia AllenSound Telegraph

Kwinana Recquatic has partnered with the Royal Life Saving Society and Cystic Fibrosis WA to make its Specialised Access and Inclusion Lessons available to more people.

SAIL is offered to people of all ages with intellectual, physical or behavioural issues or impairments.

It teaches basic water safety skills for those with special needs and those who might require extra help to gain confidence in the water.

With a subsidy provided by the Royal Life Saving Swim and Survive Fund, 34 students have taken part in the SAIL program at Kwinana Recquatic this term.

Kwinana Recquatic is also providing a 20 per cent discount for children with Cystic Fibrosis when they enrol in their swim school.
