22/09/2012 - CPUT EMS Swimming Project

A swimming safety education programme was recently offered by paramedic students from Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT). The programme was part of a Service Learning Project, which was a joint initiative between Gift of the Givers and the Service Learning and Emergency Medical Sciences Departments of CPUT. The programme included a poster making competition at Silukhanyo Primary School on 15 September 2012 to promote awareness about swimming safety. On the following Saturday (22 September), a swimming fun and safety day was held at Blue Downs Indoor Swimming Pool for ten children from Holy Cross Childrens Home. A huge amount of fun and learning took place among the children and the paramedic students alike.

Gift of the Givers provides meals & refreshments to the children.
