Our team at Aquatots Swim School have supported the Major Gala Fundraising Event for Dainere’s Rainbow previously and were disappointed we were unable to support this important cause due to the COVID 19 Pandemic. Every term we create a SwimSafer week with a theme, to help kids gain the skills needed to swim safer in a fun and engaging way. When we realised that the month was “Turn September Golden for Childhood Cancer Awareness”, the theme emerged. We themed our Swim Safer Week ‘The Golden Games’ and based our swim activities on the Royal Life Swim and Survive Awards using fun games for the children to complete. To help raise awareness of this month, our instructors and staff all dressed in yellow and gold outfits. Our Aquatots community were asked to donate a gold coin for our efforts and we are so proud that they did. We raised a total of $733.40 and we would like to thank our amazing supportive Aquatots Community for their contribution. Our team at Aquatots knows the importance of saving young lives and we are extremely happy that we were able to help raise awareness and give hope.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land where we meet and work, the Ngunnawal people, and the many other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from across Australia who have now made Canberra their home.
We celebrate and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of the ACT and region.
Dainere's Rainbow is a not for profit organisation - 100% of all funds raised or donated go to paediatric brain tumour research at Sydney Children's Hospital

Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation are proud to display the new Registered Charity Tick from the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), which aims to gives reassurance to the public that the charities they support are transparent and accountable. We rely on your donations and volunteering to ensure we can continue our vital work, so we want you to know your support is making a difference. Where you see the logo, it means the charity is registered with the ACNC so the public can easily find out what they do, who their beneficiaries are, how they are governed and how they manage their finances.
