Wristbands are a requirement in water safety guidelines for unstructured aquatic activity used in NSW schools.
Students must complete a water safety challenge, and if they’re assessed as proficient they’re issued with a Blue tyvek wristband & allowed to participate in unstructured water activity. Students assessed as non proficient are issued with Yellow wristbands & are only allowed to participate in shallow water activities.
The water survival challenge is designed for student safety & any school child in the water without a wristband can be removed from the water.
In summary a BLUE wristband identifies a proficient swimmer & a YELLOW wristband is for a non proficient swimmer.
Wizid stocks both Blue & Yellow wristbands which may be customized to include the School name, logo or message or even that of a sponsor.
