A big thumbs up to our WaterWise Academy Instructors who have taught over half a million children about water safety since its inception in 2006!This impressive milestone has just been reached by our 11 full time Instructors and 9 volunteer WaterWise Instructors who are based around the country.The WaterWise Academy is Sea Rescue’s proactive, educational initiative. Our Instructors visit the classrooms of previously disadvantaged schools, thus targeting children who are most at risk of drowning.
