NSW Water Safety Awards 2012, in conjunction with the NSW AUSTSWIM Awards of Excellence, were held on Friday 31 August 2012 at Le Montage Events Centre, and were hosted by Lilyfield AUSTSWIM. Over 140 members of the aquatic industry gathered with colleagues, friends and family to recognise individuals and organisations that have made a contribution to water safety and education in NSW.

TV Presenter Tim Gilbert was on hand as Master of Ceremonies and with his relaxed manner he certainly provided all those in attendance with a lot of laughs. We were also lucky enough to have a number of special guests in attendance including:

• Mr John Sidoti – Member for Drummoyne
• Paul Doorn – Executive Director, Office of Communities Sport and Recreation
• John Egan – Director Partnerships and Policy, Office of Communities Sport and Recreation
• Gordon Mallett – AUSTSWIM CEO
• Members of the AUSTSWIM NSW State Advisory Committee
• Members of the NSW Water Safety Advisory Council

The AUSTSWIM Awards of Excellence recognise brilliance, commitment and innovation in the teaching of swimming and water safety. Covering aspects such as teacher effectiveness, contribution to developing peers and commitment to quality teacher training. Congratulations to all those who have been nominated for awards.
