Biography

Kevin is a Principal Lecturer in Health and Physical Education in the School of Curriculum and Pedagogy at the Faculty of Education, University of Auckland. Kevin has had a lifelong commitment to drowning prevention as a researcher and an educator. He has been a frontline surf lifeguard for almost 50 years, still currently patrolling one of New Zealand’s rugged west coast beaches at Muriwai, near Auckland. He is a member of the International Lifesaving Federation (ILS) Research and Information Committee, a Co-chair of the International Task Force on Open Water Drowning Prevention, a foundation member of the New Zealand Drowning Prevention Council, and Chairman of Watersafe Auckland Inc (WAI). His recent publications include studies on: toddler parent perceptions of CPR and drowning prevention; parental supervision of children at beaches; lifeguard CPR knowledge and beliefs; rock fisher water safety; defining swimming ability in the context of drowning prevention, and high risk behaviours among youth around water.

Moran, K. (2009). Re-thinking drowning risk: The role of water safety knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours in the aquatic recreation of New Zealand youth. Saarbrucken: VDM Verlag. 201 pages. ISBN: 978-3-639-13003-4

This book challenges traditional assumptions that drowning is primarily about exposure to risk by positing that it is a complex, multifaceted socio-cultural phenomenon. The risk of drowning associated with aquatic recreation is the consequence of many underlying water safety influences that operate at intrapersonal, interpersonal and community levels. To determine the nature and extent of these influences among youth - a group that are invariably over-represented in drowning statistics worldwide, a nationwide survey of over 2,000 New Zealand youth was completed so as to obtain comprehensive data on what young people know, think and do about their safety during aquatic recreation. The research indicated that almost all respondents had taken part in some swimming (98%) in the year prior to being surveyed. Results suggest that the risk of drowning was exacerbated among many students because they had poor safety skills and knowledge, held unsound attitudes, and often reported risky behaviours. For example, many students estimated that they could not swim more than 100 m (54%), had swum outside surf patrol flags (61%) or never wore lifejackets (19%) during aquatic recreation. Taken separately, any of these dispositions is capable of heightening drowning risk; taken collectively they offer strong explanation as to why some youth are at greater risk of drowning than others. When analysed by gender, a lack of male water safety knowledge, a prevalence of unsafe attitudes, and at-risk behaviours was consistent and pronounced.

Moran, K. (2010). The shaping of swimming and water safety in New Zealand. Warkworth, New Zealand: Tradewinds Publishing Ltd. ISBN 978-0-473-17918-2

The book retraces the historical development of swimming and water safety education against an ever changing socio-cultural backdrop by exploring dominant themes from early Maori history, nineteenth century European colonisation, the early twentieth century impacts of global events (including two world wars and the Great Depression), later twentieth century economic prosperity and stability, and concludes with a snapshot of the first decade of the new Millennium with all its attendant educational fluidity and uncertainty. It is hoped that this record will inform not only social and educational historians but also the water safety education and drowning prevention community as they strive to make New Zealand’s aquatic environments safe places to work and play and thus continue our rich aquatic heritage.

The picture on the front cover depicts the first, and only, swimming pool in a New Zealand tertiary institution, opened in 1908 in the basement of the Auckland Teachers College in Wellesley Street.
