The City of Canterbury Bankstown is celebrating the success of its Swim School program, by providing free entry for children, aged up to 14 years, on Sundays in January.
Mayor Asfour said more than 26,000 people are currently enrolled in the Swim School, while in excess of 700,000 people visited the City’s Leisure and Aquatic Centres last year.
"The figures show Council’s learn to swim message is getting through to parents," Mayor Asfour said.
"I want our local families to help us celebrate, by taking up our offer of free entry for children aged up to 14 years. January is traditionally a hot month, so I expect a lot of people to take advantage each Sunday next month.
"Children will also receive a free drink on entry."
There is only one condition. Each child must be accompanied by a paying adult, because it’s always the responsibility of parents and guardians to keep children under observation at all times, while they are in a pool.
Mayor Asfour said Council is also offering a free Surf Survival Course on 21 and 22 December, with registrations taken online at cb.city/wavesmart
"And, the first 30 children who register for Council’s Bus to Beach program on 11 January, can receive a surfing lesson for just $10," Mayor Asfour said. Registrations can be made at cb.city/bustobeach
Free buses will be running to Cronulla Beach for young people and their parents/guardians on:
Buses will depart from 9am at various pick-up points, including Sefton, Greenacre, Bankstown, Panania, Revesby, Padstow, Riverwood, Canterbury, Belmore and Campsie. The return buses will depart Cronulla at 3pm.
No bookings are required, as the service operates on a first come, first served basis. For more information, go to cb.city/bustobeach
