“Drowning is still one of the most common causes of accidental death in children, so being able to swim is an essential life-saving skill which can save your child’s life. Swimming also provides lots of health benefits, including keeping heart and lungs healthy, improving strength and flexibility, increasing stamina and improvements in balance and posture. Swimming provides challenges and rewards accomplishments, which helps children to become self-confident and to better believe in their abilities. It also provides entry to other sports such as kayaking, canoeing, scuba diving, surfing and triathlon,” Annah concluded.
Opening times for pools will be;
- Quirindi - Early morning swim Monday, Wednesday and Friday 6 to 8am, Monday to Friday 2 to 6pm and Saturday/Sunday 10am to 7pm.
- Werris Creek - Monday to Friday 3 to 6pm and Saturday/Sunday 11am to 7pm.
