NAT118 - (Swimming-Lessons-School) WINNIPEG. x-17s. The Winnipeg School Division has launched a pilot project aimed at helping children stay safe in the water. The Swimming Counts program will include three sessions in the pool as well as water safety education in the classroom. School board trustee Mark Wasyliw (wah-SILL'-you) says he was moved to take action after a 12-year-old boy and 11-year-old girl drowned at a Lake Winnipeg beach in the summer of 2016. He says research has shown newcomers to Canada and Indigenous youth are most at risk of drowning -- two populations highly represented in his school division. ("..tragic results.")
