Ngadyung

 

Overview

Ngadyung is a swimming program, hosted by the Royal Life Saving Society Australian Capital Territory (ACT) branch, that has been developed in order to help prevent drowning in local Aboriginal communities. Ngadyung does this by providing specialised aquatic training for members of the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Ngadyung also aims to encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to participate in aquatics more frequently and to consider the possibly of entering the aquatics industry professionally. Ngadyung is funded through the ACT Health promotion grants program.

The following training opportunities are offered through the Ngadyung program:
