Paraburdoo SIDS and KIDS Fundraising Swimathon a huge success

RLSSWA recently distributed info to all Endorsed Swim Schools on behalf of a fellow charity in SIDS and Kids to participate in their Swimathon. Please see below the recent report from Dunnoma Swim School.

The SIDS and Kids Swimathon held at Paraburdoo Pool on Sunday 27th Feb was a huge success.

10 teams totalling over 100 swimmers registered from Dunnoma Swim School, Dunnoma Junior Lifeguard Club, Little Fish Swim School, Paraburdoo Primary School (who got into the spirit of the event by wearing matching red caps), Readings Raft which consisted of the eight members of the Reading family and MEM/Drill & Blast Rio Tinto team who raised over $3000.

The day was looked after by senior members of the JLC-Caleb Munro, Brendan Ferrugia, Jake Carrison and Shanae Tesling. They did a great job organising their swimmers and ensuring that each little person was safe in the water. This forms part of their requirements for JLC to display Leadership and Community Spirit.

All teams swam for the entire 4 hours. The day ended with the distribution of spot prizes.

We had such a great time and are so excited that Paraburdoo raised over $11,000 for research into SIDS. Its was exciting to see so many people having picnics, watching the swimmers and joining into the spirit of the day. We are grateful to be a part of such a caring community.

Our thanks go to Reece, Shane & Cain from Byblos for cooking the IGA sponsored BBQ Gary for allowing us to take over the pool for the day, to the businesses who provided spot prizes-Paraburdoo Health & Beauty, Paraburdoo Post Office, Muzzys Tom Price, Coles Tom Price, Joeys Nails, Taku Taylor Fitness, Tom Price Bakery, Desiree at Dunnoma Swim School, Lisa Johnston and Ashburton Shire.

Well done Taku and the community of Paraburdoo!…

Burringurrah Swim Event

As a part of the Healthway Go for 2&5 Remote Aboriginal Communities Swimming Program, Burringurrah swimming pool hosted a pool barbecue and swim event on Sunday 27th March.

The Healthway sponsorship provides support for after school and weekend lap swimming programs and the expansion of the school based learn to swim program in 6 remote Aboriginal communities with swimming pools managed by the Royal Life Saving Society. The program involves using an incentive system to encourage local children to engage in structured swimming programs that promote physical activity and the Healthway healthy eating messages with the aim of improving the overall health status of the Aboriginal community.

The children of Burringurrah competed in mini biathlon events which included a swim leg and a run leg. The Swim and Survive swimming caps were a popular choice on the day as the kids believed that they made them swim faster! The swimmers were rewarded with goodies such as water bottles and snap bands from Healthway and a well-deserved barbecue to replenish their energy. Thanks go out to Jacqui for organising the event and taking some great photos on the day. Well done to all the swimmers that were involved!…

CPR Has Changed

Royal Life Saving Western Australia has introduced some minor changes to resuscitation designed to help people remember how to perform resuscitation in an emergency. In December 2010, the Australian Resuscitation Council endorsed two changes to resuscitation.

The first change is the importance of calling an ambulance as soon as you are aware, that you have a person who is not responding. The second is the importance of starting 30 chest compressions then 2 breaths in resuscitation. Both changes help to make it easier to remember what people need to do in an emergency.

For some people it can be difficult to remember what to do in an emergency with so much going on. So these minor changes will make it easier to recall the necessary steps to perform resuscitation.

The core of resuscitation, which is repeatedly performing 30 chest compressions and two breaths, remains unchanged.

Royal Life Saving WA encourages all Australians to learn first aid, with new changes you never know who you may save.

Book a course now to learn the new CPR and be up to date with the changes.

Water Safety by the Book!

The Royal Life Saving Society Western Australia has launched their new childrens water safety book with the help of Steve Irons, local MP and the books character Dippy Duck. The Lynwood Ferndale playgroup hosted the event where The Adventures of Dippy Duck was read to the children by Steve Irons with Dippy Duck there to help hand out give-a-ways and interact with the kids.

The book was created to target children aged 3-5 with the Keep Watch water safety messages as a way to expand the Keep Watch program. The program has been running successfully in Western Australia for 14 years and was looking for new ways to access the target group.

The book covers water safety around the home and promotes the four Keep Watch messages, Supervision, restricting access, water familiarisation, and learning resuscitation.

Mr Irons said the Keep Watch program saved lives. WA has been seeing low toddler drowning rates, but we must stay vigilant to ensure we keep the rate as low as possible or zero.

Keep Watch Co-ordinator Katherine Celenza said it targeted children as an important strategy to expand the program. Getting children involved in their water safety is a new area for the program and hopefully Dippys messages will link in with other safety messages the kids are learning she said.

If you would like a free copy of the book please contact Katherine at Royal Life Saving WA on 9383 8200 or kcelenza@rlsswa.com.au…

Swimmers learn to save lives

FUTURE lifesavers and lifeguards tested their skills on Saturday 12th February at the Arena Joondalup Junior Lifeguard Club Development Session.

More than 30 children took part in the annual event, which tested their current skills, and introduced new lifesaving techniques and activities.

Royal Life Saving Society community education manager Trent Hotchkin said that the recent event had been successful and children had learned life-saving skills during their swimming lessons with the club.

“Whilst we ensure the activities are great fun and offer new experiences for the children, they also have a serious outcome of educating the children in essential lifesaving skills that may one day save a life,” Mr Hotchkin said.
