Registrations are now open for the Flight Centre Foundation Halberg Water Skills for Life training session that will be taking place at Te Rauparaha Arena in Porirua on Sunday 11 March for physically disabled young people (5-13 years) and their families.

This event is part of the ‘Flight Centre Foundation Halberg Water Skills for Life’ programme that sees the Halberg Foundation adapting the Water Safety New Zealand ‘Water Skills for Life’ programme which is aimed at teaching 5-13 year olds how to keep themselves safe in, on or around the water.

The Halberg Foundation is collaborating with Water Safety New Zealand and Swimming New Zealand to adapt the Water Skills for Life course to include physically disabled young people.

There are seven skill sets (consisting of 21 in-water skills and six water safety awareness related skills).

The adapted course will also include training to parents/caregivers to support the participants in the water.

To register, contact Halberg Adviser Erin Fitzgerald on or 021 550 943.
