Children in Quang Ngai taught swimming skills in river

Children in the central province of Quang Ngai have been taught swimming skills right in river instead of swimming pools. 

On June 11, authorities of Tinh Long commune, Quang Ngai city, opened a swimming course for 100 children from the first to fourth grades in Tra Khuc River. 

The class will last until the end of the summer to help children prevent themselves from drowning. 

A representative of the commune said the model will continue to be implemented in following years as it is convenient to all locals, especially children.


Nguyen Tien Dung, Vice Secretary of the Quang Ngai city Party Committee, said the city plans to organise 20 swimming classes in hotels’ swimming pools this summer.
