Congratulations to Year 8 Archie DW and Year 7 Miley DW who have both successfully achieved their Bronze 1,2 and 3 Lifesavers certificates recently.
To reach each level, swimmers must prove a number of skills and upon completion of all three stages, be able to do the following:

  • Enter shallow water safely and confidently and wade
  • Tread water and signal for help
  • Swim continuously in clothing for 50m
  • Swim Lifesaving Backstroke
  • Scull head and feet first
  • Hold the ‘HELP’ position
  • Demonstrate a non-swimmer, weak swimmer and an unconscious casualty
  • Demonstrate a ‘Shout and Signal’ rescue
  • Throw an aid
  • Demonstrate a reach rescue
  • Enter deep water safely and confidently
  • Perform a feet first surface dive and swim underwater
  • Climb out in deep water without using the steps

Well done, Archie and Miley, these are extremely valuable skills to have.
