Kiwi swim scheme makes waves


Read The New Zealand Herald

Thousands of Auckland children are becoming more confident in the water, thanks to a city-wide project teaching them how to swim.

The Greater Auckland Aquatic Action Plan has had up to 60,000 children from around the region taking up swimming lessons in the past two years.

Up to 200 primary schools are involved and children work towards being able to swim at least 200m – the standard distance considered for being able to survive.
