Swimming lessons are making a massive splash these summer holidays.

Around 80 kids have dived into learning about pool safety and water confidence in the holiday program.

Glen Innes Swimming Pool swim teacher Veronica McNamara said the 10-day program provides a social and fun activity for children while encouraging swim safety.

“Each block of lessons goes for 10 weeks,” she said.

“We teach water confidence and safety and then we get into stroking and kicking.

“Australia is one of those water environments and you want kids to be safe around water.

“They don’t need to be an Ian Thorpe but you want them to be safe and to reduce drowning and keep kids happy and safe in the water.”
