KURRAONG has had a focus on swimming safety over the summer months.
The organisation teamed up with Narrandera Swimming Club instructors Terry Lawrence and Jenny Ingram to develop and implement a swimming fitness and water confidence program for people with a disability.
The participants from Narrandera and Leeton are being supported by Kurrajong support workers on Monday afternoon to work through a variety of swimming strokes, water confidence activities and overall fitness.
Mr Lawrence said each of the participants has improved since the start of the program and hoped in the future a carnival could be organized in conjunction with the Narrandera Swimming Club.
Kurrajong said it was a fantastic opportunity to work with qualified instructors and use the Lake Talbot Complex.
While the project promotes water safety and fitness, the participants have also found it be a “lot of fun”.
