KARI Foundation Makes a Splash with Gwonggubunga Swim Program
KARI Foundation recently wrapped up its much-anticipated Gwonggubunga Vacation Swim Program, held from the 26th to the 29th of September 2023, which has been met with waves of appreciation from both attendees and their families.
The program was spread over four planned days and featured:
– Two days spent learning at the local pool.
– A day dedicated to creek swimming.
– And the final day at the beach.
By changing the locations over the 4 days the participants were able to learn that not every environment is the same and that there are different challenges with each location.
Each young swimmer was gifted an essentials kit designed to augment their swimming experience. The kit encompassed a bucket hat, drawstring bag, sunscreen, a towel, swimming cap, goggles, a T-shirt, and a refillable drink bottle. Parents loved the initiative with one expressing, ” Dexter had the time of his life. I’m so thankful that his school holidays was full of not only fun at the beach, but making him aware of water safety.” Another parent admired the program dual impact, noting their son Nash’s newfound water confidence and improved social skills, adding, ” The communication from your team was exceptional keeping us updated with any changes during the day, We can’t thank you enough for running an educational and fun filled program.”
The KARI Foundation’s CP Manager, Markie, reflected on the program’s resounding success, “To see the participants enthusiasm and know they’ve acquired crucial water safety skills is immensely fulfilling. We remain firm in our commitment to community enrichment.”
In conclusion, families eagerly anticipate the continuation of such enriching program’s. As one parent stated, “It’s a brilliant initiative for children to learn, have fun, and make lasting friendships.”
