05 Mar Swimanathi Graduates 2019
Mighty Kids are mighty proud after completing their obstacle challenge.
On this beautiful day beside the Indian Ocean, we transformed into a water wonderland of splashes and squeals as the Addington Primary School’s water babies tried out their new water skills.
The contestants taking part in the Mighty Kids Finale included youngsters who took part in our CSI programme, “Swimanathi”, a swimming programme educating the little ones regarding water safety between 26 January and 2 March 2019.
This CSI initiative, a partnership between uShaka Marine World, the Princess Charlene Foundation, Tsogo Sun, GeoChem, Lifesaving SA and the eThekwini Department of Sport & Recreation, set out to teach 150 children from our neighbouring Addington Primary School, that fun and water safety go hand in hand. These learners, who come from disadvantaged communities, now know that they can enjoy themselves safely and confidently from the Swimanathi programme.
Each child that participated in the Mighty Kid event received a certificate and a medal to take home to show off what they’d achieved to family and friends.
