Lifesaving and rescue awards

These awards focus on skill development accompanied by judgment and initiative. A continuation from Cannington's school age curriculum, Swim and Survive provides a broad, balanced program of swimming, water safety and survival skills. The program builds confidence and endurance. These stages will be run in conjunction with the Junior Lifeguard Club.
