Nepean Aquatic Centre, PAWS Studios, Ready Set Dance and Kids Alive, Do the 5 are excited to announce that they have partnered to bring a brand new Water Safety show to your local primary or preschool!

Teaching children about water safety through stories, song, dance, animation and puppetry keeps children engaged and actively participating in a performance that promotes the lifesaving skills as outlined in the Kids Alive, Do the 5 messaging – Fence the Pool, Shut the Gate, Learn To Swim, Supervise, and learn Resuscitation – plus beach and sunscreen safety, and an introduction to CPR.

The partnership is launching at Penrith CBD Corps Twilight Penrith Festival on Friday 19th May (5-9pm), featuring an onstage performance by Ready Set Dance students from PAWS Studio, Wise Owl from Kids Alive Do the 5, and Paddles The Platypus from Nepean Aquatic Centre teaching the audience to “Do the 5”.

Julie Sheldrake from Nepean Aquatic Centre said, “We have been providing free water safety education to local preschools and daycare centres for nearly a decade, using the wonderful resources from Kids Alive, Do the 5 to engage the children. We were excited to learn that Kids Alive had recently partnered with Ready, Set Dance, and thrilled that PAWS Studio were keen to partner with us to deliver these Water Safety shows to our local community. Nepean Aquatic Centre and Eva Borys Swim School are trusted by the local community to deliver high quality swimming lessons, and PAWS Studio are the best in the area for dance, circus and performance training. We can’t wait to team up and visit children in our area to deliver these important swim safety messages in a new and fun way!”

Emma Lawrence from Kids Alive said it was wonderful to see so many local organisations committed to helping share important water safety messages.

“Our goal is to ensure there are zero drownings in the most vulnerable under 5s and it is heart-warming to see organisations like Nepean spearheading action to help achieve this mission,” she stated.

The NEW Kids Alive, Do the 5 Water Safety Show is FREE for schools, daycare centres, preschools, and community organisations. To make a booking, please contact
