BOOKINGS are now open for the summer school holiday learn-to-swim program at Shire of Campaspe swimming pools.
Councillor Carol Howell said it was the first time aquatic education had been offered at all aquatic centres, including the indoor facility at Echuca War Memorial Aquatic Centre and outdoor pools at Rochester, Kyabram, Tongala, Rushworth, Colbinabbin, Lockington and Stanhope.
“We are very excited to be able to offer aquatic education at all our local swimming pools across the shire, especially for the Colbinabbin and Stanhope communities,” she said.
“Learning how to swim is vitally important for all children so they feel confident around water and know what to do should they find themselves in trouble."
The 30-minute sessions are conducted by Austswim instructors. Phone 5480 2994 for more information.
