JOONDALUP’S Seastarz swim school is helping those in need to get in the water safely.

Owner Louise Schmidt said the school had partnered with Little Big Swim School in Queensland to support their drive for children’s swimwear and equipment for a teacher to take to Cambodia next month.

“Thanks to the generosity of our customers and staff we were able to send a nice big bag of swimming items,” she said.

“Cambodia has one of the highest drowning rates in the world and children lack access to basic water safety training.

“Often they come to lessons provided by volunteers ill-equipped to swim so by donating goggles and swimwear, we aim to make their learn to swim journey a better one.”
