Aqualogan program wins national awards

Aqualogan program wins national awards
May 4, 2012

Logan City Council's Aqualogan program has won two awards at the recent Swim Australia Awards.

The awards, announced on 30th April 2012, recognised Aqualogan as Best Swim School - Printed Material and also awarded aqualogan with the Outstanding Community Service Award for its programs servicing cultural and disadvantaged groups in the city of Logan.

Logan Mayor Pam Parker said it was the second consecutive year Aqualogan had been recognised at the Swim Australia Awards.

Mayor Parker stated "we have excellent facilities at our four aqualogan centres, and great programs, including learn to swim, squad training and recreational activities, which are helping our city's residents be fit and healthy.

"In particular, our award for Outstanding Community Service recognised the work we have done with people who speak English as a second language, Women's Only and Clear Horizons programs. Many people who arrive in Logan from overseas are unfamiliar with water awareness and safety, so our program uses visual cues and other non-verbal communications to present these important messages."

Councillor Parker said being recognised two years running at a national level was a coup for the city, adding "in 2011, Aqualogan Springwood took out the award for best Environmental Practices, after implementing initiatives to save water, energy and carbon emissions.

"Aqualogan is a national leader in running aquatic centres, and testament to that is the fact that two of our staff also spoke at Swim Australia's conference this week to share their knowledge about what makes our facilities be world-class."

Logan City Council's Aqualogan aquatic centres are located at Beenleigh, Bethania, Eagleby and Springwood.
