With the election not too far away, I thought we could have a thread to keep up with it.
Shorten is promising access to swimming lessons for all primary school aged children. I think it's a great step, as the cost of lessons are out of reach for many families. However, I think it would be better to implement this for younger children.

I really hope this promise comes through if they get in. I'm a firm believer that all kids should have swimming lessons and it should start from 6-12 month of age ( not lessons but water awareness )
Drowning is such a preventable thing IMO..
But I'm also realistic and know it's probably just a ploy to grab votes. I have little to no faith in politicians

Don't they already do this though? I know our school does. They do a week in term 4 from PP.
I'm annoyed that the negativity has already started. Apparently Malcolm has "a plan", and Shorten is just a "Bill".
Every election I hope that each party will just tell us their plans for the future and focus on what they will do and not go negative. I'm always disappointed.

Ahh, cool. I didn't read the whole article as every time I opened it, I could read the first para but then it kept trying to open a new page to some click bait thing. So I gave up after the third attempt.
