Keep Watch @ Public Pools in Cabonne

Pools in Cabonne are implementing the Royal Life Saving ‘Keep Watch @ Public Pools’ program which urges parent or carers of children to take an active role in the supervision of their children when visiting public pools. Keep Watch @ Public Pools outlines the different supervision criterion depending on the age or swimming ability of a child. Those criteria are: for a child 0–5 and non-swimmers, a parent or carer needs to be in the water within arms’ reach of the child at all times; for 6–10, that parent needs to be actively supervising at all times and dressed ready to enter the water; for children 11–15, a parent or carer needs to be checking regularly on their child and be ready to enter the water if necessary. You will see additional signage in place at all Cabonne Pools reinforcing this message and there will also be wristbands provided for ‘non-swimmers’ to wear so they can be readily identified by Lifeguards and Pool Supervisors in cases of distress. The program aims to have parents/carers and lifeguards working together to ensure safety for all pool patrons of Cabonne – please see the below link for further information.
