    Thank you for putting together a great video, I am sure it will help save many lives.
    Does the NSRI have a program in place where they visit schools to show children videos like this?
    Keep up the good work!

      We do have a program called the WaterWise Academy Hermann. It is aimed at 9 to 14 year old disadvantaged children. If the school that our instructors visit has a TV we play the video, if not we use other teaching techniques. Thank you for your interest. Regards, Andrew.

    thanks guys for the tremendous work. you guys “out of sight but not out of mind” i hear you when it comes to water wise education and as an angler, had helped and assisted many a bather that landed themselves in trouble and i can tell you most of them does not come from the disadvantaged areas. so maybe if possible expand your wonderful programme to other areas as well, or even better have a programme running on the beach or place where the people frequent,get some schools involved to bring there scholars down to the beach for some good water wise education.
