Water safety programme extended
Every year the Matamata Swimming Club runs the Stanley Group Swim Safe Programme. Over the years the club has worked with more than 1500 children and teenagers.
This year Stanley Group provided additional sponsorship for school students to participate in the fiveweek, 10- lesson swim safe programme.
The schools that took up sponsorship were Matamata Primary, Firth Primary, Walton School, Matamata Christian School, Matamata Intermediate and Te Poi School.
There are now 110 enrolled swimmers in the Stanley Group Swim Safe Programme this year.
Building confidence: There are a lot more Matamata children who are going to be feeling safer in the water thanks to the generosity of the Stanley Group.
