    This was the UK ad I was talking about earlier. Much prefer its approach.

    Just out of interest - those who started swimming lessons from an early age, was there any sort of pool safety/first aid education done as a part of it?

    I think more opportunistic education should be done - schools, workplaces, antenatal classes, parenting groups/classes, babies/toddlers/kids swimming classes, driver's ed etc

    Not this scare propaganda give us your money crap.
    That was great! Who would think to put CPR to music to help remember!?

    We are taught with 'achy breaky heart', 'another one bites the dust' and 'row row row your boat'.

    I don't think that ad provides enough at all. And telling people it's easy? First thing you will be told in a course, is it is exhausting, it is painful on your arms, your back etc. And all you do is call and compress? Where was the mention of a defib?

    That ad says to me, hey it's this easy so you don't really need a course.

    And our kids have done swimming from 6 months, eldest is 10. They are taught is a whistle blows to get out the water. They do roleplay with a life ring, but so far not much more.
    As part of getting my bronze medallion in high school we had to complete a first aid component.

    I know in WA, where this ad airs, that St John do first aid club in schools, from junior primary through to high school. So they're teaching small ones from the start.

    I definitely agree that they could also teach it in antenatal classes, as resus for a baby is very different, and with babies come choking risks etc.

    Not in our school they don't. St John are getting rid of their cadet program, that was announced last year, that I was going to enrol dd1 in when she was old enough because they wanted to introduce a school component.

    If your school isn't doing it, here is the link so you can request it. I think educating kids is a great start!

    It's sad about cadets, I did it when I was younger, it was a lot of fun

    There was no first aid when learning to swim when I was little...but that was a really long time ago - so things may have changed!

    Oh no, are you serious? I spent my youth as a cadet, and then as a cadet leader. I was going to enrol my kids too! wah!

    Edit to add - I just looked up the NSW website and they seem to still be all about cadets. Maybe it's just in WA?

    The article is too small for my old eyes to read But did I get it right, that they are closing Freemantle cadet division? And if that is the case, do you guys not have any other divisions?
