Swimming Lessons for CALD (Cultural & Linguistically Diverse) Children and Adults in Sydney
Nereids Aquatic Centre is a culturally qualified centre and all of our staff is certified to provide top quality swimming lessons to all people living in Australia regardless of their race, ethnic background and culture.
Our team is fully committed to delivering the most effective private swimming lessons for the Cultural and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) community of Sydney. We have a strong belief in the equal rights of people which we apply in our everyday life.
Royal Life Saving has officially included Nereids Aquatic Centre in the Cultural Competency Program which is a significant tool for reducing the danger of drowning in the whole country. Official data show that such danger is higher for people who were born overseas.
Nikos Vasilellis himself, the founder of Nereids, is a person from a culturally and linguistically diverse background himself.
Being both sensitive and experienced in this issue, we invite all CALD children and adults in Sydney to share with us the wonderful experience of swimming.
Australia is a Model of Multicultural Society
The most recent census indicates that Australia is a nation which is establishing specific characteristics: Cultural diversity, expansion and fast changes. Indeed, the findings of the census show that throughout the country, there are communities from various backgrounds which come from different countries, speak different languages and have different religious beliefs.
These findings show, beyond any doubt, that Australia is a culturally diverse society. Numbers speak for themselves: More than 3.500.000 of the citizens of the country were born overseas and almost one sixth of the population, approximately 4.000.000, are not native English speakers.
Historically speaking, most citizens of Australia are either immigrants or second-generation immigrants. Even more striking is the fact that non-native Australians come from more than 200 countries.
During the passage of time, Australia has embraced immigration and accepted the rights of each ethnicity group to practice their cultural traditions, free from discrimination, within the legal and institutional framework of the country.
