Marking their Grand Opening with a campaign to end childhood drowning

Townsville, QLD (21 December 2016) - Little Snappers Swim School in Townsville celebrates their Grand Opening with a 4-day Free Swimming Intensive program from January 9 to 12, 2017.

Little Snappers Swim School Northside marks its Grand Opening with a FREE 4-day swimming intensive program the 2nd week of January at their Townsville location in Deeragun.  In light of recent widespread drowning’s and near-drowning’s locally and throughout Australia, Little Snappers continues its campaign to end childhood drowning by offering the community access to free lessons.

The weeklong celebration of free services and events offered to the Townsville community further underlines the school’s mission for producing children who are safer in and around water. “I’m excited to introduce the first Little Snappers boutique swim school to Townsville.” says franchise operator Denise Paxton, who has been teaching swimming for over 25 years, “Teaching children is my passion and the Little Snappers philosophy of ensuring that children are taught in a safe, nurtured environment and providing every child with a positive and happy experience in the water is one I truly believe in. Drownings are the number one killer of children 0-4 years old. This free 4 day intensive is only the beginning of our work here in Townsville to end childhood drownings”.

The Townsville Grand Opening of Little Snappers is the 2nd of many to come for the small boutique Learn To Swim company. “We’re very pleased to have the opportunity to bring our mission of teaching children in a boutique setting to Townsville,” says former North Queensland Cowboy Mark Dalle Cort, and CEO of Little Snappers Swim Schools. “Denise Paxton, who we chose as operator, is a an outstanding teacher of the highest caliber. She will continue to spread our mission of teaching from the heart and ending childhood drownings”.

And to kick off the weeklong celebration, Little Snappers invites all families of Townsville to join them on Saturday 7 January 2017 for an outdoor day of water play games, prizes, food and fun! A wonderful way to begin the New Year is giving our children the gift of life. And Little Snappers welcomes you to join them as they celebrate their Grand Opening in Townsville.
