Would you know what to do if your child was drowning?


We cannot stress enough at All Sorts how important swimming lessons and water safety is for your kids. In Australia drowning continues to be one of the most common causes of preventable death in children under five. This statistic shows that not enough is being done to stop our kids drowning and we simply aren’t prepared if the unimaginable happens.

Here are five tips for parents to bear in mind to protect and prevent your children from water-related death or injury.

1. Build a barrier.

Make sure that you restrict your child’s access to the pool through a properly installed fence that self-closes and self-latches and don’t get into the habit of propping it open when you have to do a few trips to and from the pool.

Almost 50% of pool drownings happen due to this type of carelessness or because pool owners failed to fix a faulty gate or fence. When we think about water safety we often only worry about inground pools but you need to consider anything that contains water around the house, no matter how shallow it seems. Inflatable pools with a depth of more than 300mm need to be fenced, covers should be put on your spa and tank, and water features and ponds need to be covered with mesh.

2. Learn CPR.

Knowing how to respond quickly and confidently if your child is drowning could be the difference between life and death. It’s also important to encourage your family and friends to learn CPR.

3. Supervise!

Drowning happens quickly and silently. It is very easy to get distracted by a million tasks on your to-do list but if your children are near water it is essential that they are watched at ALL times – an occasional glance over to them in between chores isn’t enough.

The 2015 Royal Life Saving National Drowning Report found that 81% of drowning deaths in children aged 0 to 4 occurred due to falls into water when adult supervision is lapsed or was totally absent. Supervised children don’t drown. Stay vigilant.

4. Enrol in swimming lessons.

Swimming lessons for kids not only ensure they are safe in water but also benefits their health and wellbeing. All Sorts Swim School is a fun and safe environment for your kids with expert instructors teaching people of all ages (ages 6 and up).

 5. Talk to your kids.

It’s important to discuss water safety with your kids and have firm rules in place about how to behave around water. Keep the conversation simple and clear, use stories to capture their attention and make sure you get them to repeat the messages back to you to show they understand. It might sound pedantic but repetition is key.

When we think of summers spent by the pool we can often ignore the real danger that water presents to young children. In NSW alone, pools have claimed 83 innocent young lives in the last 13 years.

The Royal Life Saving’s Be Pool Safe campaign is striving to reduce death and injury in our backyards. They have a home pool safety checklist you can use to ensure your pool is safe. Simple actions save lives. Be responsible and act.

Why swim through winter?


With the weather starting to get cooler, the idea of swimming often loses its appeal, and some families stop their regular weekly swimming lessons. But as nice as it might be to stay home and rug up instead of going swimming, there are actually many benefits of swimming throughout winter…


When winter is over, your children will be back in the pool or at the beach with gusto. But if they’re returning to the water after an extended absence, their survival skills will have regressed. By continuing their swimming lessons throughout winter, they will be much better equipped to cope with potentially life-threatening situations which can easily arise when swimming.

We also see increased fear levels from children who have had an extended break from the water. Children who were confident and happy swimmers at the end of summer can often become fearful of the water if they haven’t been exposed to it for a long period, which can be distressing for the children and parents.

Progress & Consistency

Like any skill, the more you practice, the better you become. And the less you practice, the faster you lose the skills that you once had! This is especially true for younger children – repetition helps them to learn and remember. And it only takes two or three missed lessons before we start to see a noticeable regression. By continuing your swimming lessons over winter, you’re ensuring that your children’s skills are maintained, and that the money you’ve invested in the warmer months isn’t wasted!


During the winter months, All Sorts Swim School raises the pool temperature to 32 degrees and sits at 30 degrees the remainder of the year. We also have heater on pool deck to ensure the air in the Centre is warm. It is important to ensure that your children are warm and dry when the finish their lesson, before leaving the centre.  Make sure they are completely dry before you leave, and dressed in warm clothes. Don’t leave the centre in wet swimmers and/or wet towels.

There is a misconception that children who attend swimming lessons during winter are more prone to cold and flu. In fact, regular exercise, including swimming lessons, helps to increase your children’s fitness and immunity. Children don’t catch colds by swimming in winter – so long as you maintain their body warmth when leaving the centre you will actually be doing them a favour by continuing to swim in the cooler months.
