Bookings open for learn to swim program

BOOKINGS are now open for term two of Gladstone Regional Council's learn to swim program at the Gladstone Aquatic Centre.

The program runs from April 20-June 26, with all lessons conducted in the heated pool.

Mayor Gail Sellers encouraged parents to take advantage of the progressive program, which caters for children aged four months and older.

"Water safety awareness is of critical importance to children, especially as our region is predominantly coastal," Cr Sellers said.

Enrolment forms are available online at www.gladstone.qld.gov.au/gladstone-aquatic-centre.
