Just before March break, Grade 7 students from Richmond Hill’s Walter Scott Public School got dressed in street clothing to go swimming at Centennial Pool.

The Lifesaving Society of Ontario organizes the Swim to Survive+ program in schools around Markham and Richmond Hill, specifically geared to elementary students, as many begin to engage in risky or potentially endangering activities in their youth.

Swim to Survive+, funded by TransCanada Corporation, teaches students coping skills for falling into deep water fully clothed and simulates real-life situations, in which students must assist other youths who may have fallen into the water.
