The Lifesaving Society is providing free Swim to Survive swimming lessons to the community. CUPE4400 has again partnered with LSS to fund this valuable program. They are hosting the program at 4 locations:
- Downsview SS
- Carleton Village PS
- Central Tech
- RH King Academy
The program is geared to 7 – 14 year olds, but they are offering it to anyone over the age of 7 who would like to attend. They offer adults classes as well as family slots. Parents will have their own class while their children participate in the class that best suits their skill level. Over the last 2 years that this program has been offered, adults have expressed a great interest in learning how to survive an unexpected fall into the water. They piloted an adult class last year and it was well received and attended.
Please check out the attached Swim to Survive flyer. If you cannot attend the registration (or it has already occurred) you can register via the email provided.
