Towards a No Drown Town
The Australian Swim Schools Association proudly introduces the “No Drown Town” water safety initiative, now in it’s second year. As swim schools registered with The Australian Swim Schools Association, we will be participating in No Drown Town week from 27th November to the 3rd of December this year. Visit us in centre for lots of fun, and information on safety, safety participation certificates, prizes and a visit from Paddles the Platypus at Eva Borys on November 25, and at Nepean Aquatic Centre the next week, 2nd December from 8.45 – 11.45!

The “No Drown Town” concept is built around the idea of encouraging families to make their homes a “No Drown Town”, using the Safer Swimminglayers of protection to take care of those closest to them – This is about taking responsibility and is seen as the highest priority, associating it with the colour red.
Beyond what each family does at home in their “No Drown Town”, their efforts extend to the local community – Their Neighbourhood, School, Council – This is connected with the colour blue, representing water in its various forms throughout the community, which is the focal point of the risk.
Those collective efforts will then have the best chance of changing things nationally and help families across the country. The colour green associates this with the growth and well being of a country united to address the tragedy of childhood drowning.
In summary, this is Act Personally, Influence Locally, Act Nationally.
Those ideas are represented in the No Drown Town logo. The links are symbolic of those 3 layers of the community being connected and working together toward a “No Drown Town” ideal.
