Oakridge International School in partnership with Swimming Matters- international Swimming Institute, launched a swimming program Australia’s National Organisation for Teaching Swimming and Water Safety (AUSTSWIM) on Thursday at Oakridge International School, Gachibowli. The programme specifically focuses on creating awareness on water safety among children, apart from a fun environment. The programme ensures that children learn to swim in the right way and take to the sport for life, thereby leading a healthy life. Ceri Weeks, AUSTSWIM Swim Teacher from Australia, says, “Swimming is a critical skill, every individual should learn to be safe with water. Aquatic education offered by us involves theory classes and practical swimming training in the pool, spread over eight progressive stages during the course. Besides different swimming skills, the students will be taught techniques which help in rescue like survivor back stroke and survivor side strokes, rescuing from the bottom of the pool, resuscitaion etc.”

As part of this collaboration swim teachers of Oakridge will be trained in  initially. The programme for students will begin in June, 2015 and will be available at Oakridge International Schools at Hyderabad, Bangalore and Vizag.
