Royal Life Saving and BHP Billiton Iron Ore have shared a community partnership for the past 10 years and are pleased to announce we have recently renewed this for another 3 years. This partnership supports many aspects of Royal Life Saving including programs such as Swim & Survive and Infant Aquatics.
Royal Life Saving recently conducted a 'Have a Go Day' swimming and lifesaving carnival for BHP Billiton Iron Ore employees enabling their children to experience the benefits of the Swim & Survive and Infant Aquatic programs.
The 'Have a Go Day' is a swimming and lifesaving session involving a water safety information talk followed by a practical swimming and lifesaving carnival. The carnival includes obstacle swimming relays, rescue races and rope rescues. While ensuring the activities are great fun and offer new experiences for the children, they also have a serious outcome of educating children in essential lifesaving skills that may one day save a life.
Trent Hotchkin, the Senior Manager of Swimming & Water Safety Education at Royal Life Saving states "the 'Have a Go Day' program is based on the Royal Life Saving Swim & Survive program that is designed to provide essential swimming, water safety and survival skills to prepare children for a lifetime of safe activity in, on or around the water."
The Have a Go Day was hosted at Bold Park Aquatic Centre enabling the employees to experience all the activities of a Have a Go Day as well as relax with a BBQ in the outdoor setting after
a morning in the pool.
"We are proud to have shared a community partnership with the Royal Life Saving Society WA over the past 10 years. BHP Billiton is committed to investing in recreational activities in the communities in which we operate." said Brett Swayn, Vice President Health Safety Environment and Community, BHP Billiton Iron Ore.
