Pool safety

Council endorses the Keep Watch public education program of the Royal Life Saving Society - Australia. 

Keep watch @ public pools

When by the pool with your kids Keep watch @ public pools recommends:

  • for zero-five year olds and non-swimmers, a parent or guardian must be in the water at all times within arms' reach of the child/non-swimmer
  • for six-10 year olds, constant active supervision is required by a parent or guardian. Be prepared to get wet and enter the water with this age group
  • for 11-14 year olds, parents or guardians must physically check on children on a regular basis.
