Whether you have a pool in your backyard or you’re planning a summer holiday, you’re bound to spend much of the summer in water. This poses a very real and relevant question to all Everton Park real estate owners and renters; do our Everton Park children need to learn how to swim?
With the weather heating up, it’s time to consider your stance on compulsory swimming lessons. While undeniably worthwhile, the expense of private swimming lessons has unfortunately made them unaffordable for many people. The latest push is for all Queensland primary schools to introduce compulsory swimming lessons, in an attempt to curb the massive 25 per cent increase in drowning of young people aged between 15 and 24 years old in the last decade.
A new online petition has been launched. All Everton Park real estate owners, long-term residents and first time renters are encouraged to go online and pledge their support for mandatory swimming lessons. The petition will be taken to politicians, asking for their support in throwing water safety education back into the spotlight.
If you have children attending a primary school in or around Everton Park, or you’re just a concerned Everton Park resident, you may like to consider visiting www.swimandsurvive.com.au and joining the growing online petition.
Let us know your thoughts on compulsory swimming lessons in Queensland primary schools. Will you be pledging your support on the petition? Do you view this as a worthwhile cause?
