“Little Heroes is a small, registered charity providing aquatic education opportunities for children and adults with a disability, in an inclusive environment.
Our swimming academy provides an inclusive environment where mainstream students and students with a disability learn together and from each other. We work hard to provide these inclusive swimming lessons for our ‘little heroes’ through a Disability Swim Program subsidised by our Mainstream Learn-To-Swim lessons. Our holistic approach to teaching focuses on relaxing students in the water, how to be safer in the water which will inevitably lead to more enjoyment in the water.”
"In order to keep our Disability Program accessible, students automatically enjoy reduced fees, and qualify for further subsidies through the Niclas Kesler Scholarship. Children and adults with specialised needs are also encouraged to participate in our surf programs. We provide a ‘shadow’ but do this in a way that the student feels part of the group and is not singled out.
We are also able to design programs for individuals and small groups with specialised needs. For example, we currently run an aqua aerobics class for a group of adults, in conjunction with a local service, and also learn to swim lessons for support classes at a number of high schools."Other accessibility information:
