Water Safety Education

Royal Life Saving is Australia’s largest provider of water safety education. A wide range of our programs are delivered in schools, pools and community centres daily. They are designed to build awareness of dangers in aquatic environments and to arm students with lifesaving skills used in both prevention and rescue.

Royal Life Saving’s key water safety education programs available for schools are:

Water Smart

Water Smart is a water safety education program that can be conducted in school classrooms and playgrounds. Comprehensive curriculum materials including activity sheets are available or primary school students can work towards achieving the Water Smart award.

Swim and Survive

A national swimming and water safety program to teach children essential foundation skills in swimming, water safety, personal survival and basic rescue. Schools may deliver the Swim and Survive program themselves or organise a Swim and Survive Partner to instruct the students.


Royal Life Saving has a long history of teaching lifesaving in schools. Students can progressively achieve awards usually culminating at the Bronze Medallion. Lifesaving develops knowledge, skills, fitness and judgement in prevention and rescue and achievement of these awards is highly sort after in many leadership activities and workplaces.  

National Water Safety Quiz

This is a great online interactive quiz to test students’ understanding of key water safety principles and increase awareness of unsafe and safe behaviours.
