Water skills on show
More than 100 avid swimmers will make their way to Port Hedland this week to compete in the annual Pilbara Spirit Swimming and Lifesaving Carnival.
Children from Tom Price, Marble Bar, Yandeyarra, South Hedland and Port Hedland will travel a collective 700km to attend the carnival.
The event focuses on encouraging Aboriginal children in the Pilbara and Kimberley regions to participate in more organised swimming and lifesaving in a fun racing environment. Facilitated by Royal Life Saving Society WA and Swimming WA, the two organisations use the carnival as a tool to ensure swimming and water safety education are key in communities across the region.
Children compete in the 25m freestyle race at Marble Bar Swimming Pool earlier this year.
