New Zealand Schools
"The NZSSSC represents some 400 schools across New Zealand with a combined student
population of 250,000.
We brought World Swim Against Malaria to the attention of our schools and asked
if some of them would like to swim. The response was wonderful.
Schools up and down the country have chosen to be involved. We will have students,
teachers, parents, family and friends swimming. In some schools the swim is being
linked to lessons to further raise awareness of malaria and the difference we can
This is a laudable initiative, bringing together people from across the world to
cooperate in making a fundamental difference to many people’s lives.
Count us in."
