the importance of our Water Safety Program

Here’s an email we recently received highlighting the importance of our Water Safety Program.

Hi East Lakes Swim Centre,

I just want to say a huge thank you for everything you do. But in particular I want to praise your Water Safety Program.

On the Easter weekend, myself and my girls were staying at a hotel in Sydney. The hotel had a pool. Both my girls are students at your swimming school. Miss 3 is not yet confident in the pool.

Miss 7 was in the pool. Miss 3 entered the pool when my back was turned and had a drowning incident.

On entering the water, Miss 3 sunk straight to the bottom of the pool. I turned around to see just the very top inch of her head above the water. She was standing vertically on the floor of the pool, nearly completely submerged. Miss 7 realised quickly that her sister could not breathe and swam and lifted her up. She held her above the water and brought her to the side of the pool, where I lifted Miss 3 out of the pool. Miss 3 was frightened and I was very concerned. I monitored her in the coming weeks. I will never be able to erase the image of Miss 3 standing under the water from my mind. 

Miss 7 knew what to do and acted calmly and quickly.  I believe that this is a credit to your Water Safety programmes at East Lakes. Thank you so much. You really are making a difference to the lives of our children. Please always keep doing what you are doing.
