Kurri Kurri Aquatic and Fitness Centre offers free Learn to Swim lessons
Cessnock’s youngest residents are being offered a free swimming lesson in the lead up to summer.
Kurri Kurri Aquatic Centre and Fitness Centre is part of a national initiative giving families an opportunity with children under the age of five to participate in one free swim lesson from 23 September to 2 October.
Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent is encouraging residents to take advantage of this wonderful offer.
“As we approach warmer weather families tend to enjoy their time together cooling off, whether it is in a pool, river, dam or in the ocean.”
“It is vital our children, especially those under the age of five, have the opportunity to learn how to swim as this could save their life this summer.”
Drowning is the number one cause of accidental death in children under five. This special event is a part of Learn 2 Swim Week which aims to see more children learning the vital skills of swimming to ultimately help reduce our drowning statistics.
