Last week the Royal Life Saving released statistics on child drownings throughout Australia and the NT in particular. One child drowning is too many and sadly there have been way more than that. In fact, we in the NT have the highest rate per capita. As an advocate for rural children and the rural residents generally I call on the NT Government to take note of this issue and to provide facilities where our children can learn to swim. It’s not the only solution but it’s a much-needed start.
