Desiree Pinetown, our Waterwise Educator in Paarl, Cape Winelands has had a great term teaching water safety. This is her message:'In Paarl, NSRI’s Waterwise Academy can celebrate another term of success. I want to thank all the learners of the schools where I have been for eagerly supporting the Waterwise project. They have been wonderful ambassadors spreading the Waterwise message everywhere they go. I am truly blessed to get such unwavering support from the learners and the community. Their parents and teachers can be proud of them!''A special thanks to my mentor and trainer, Eoudia Erasmus, from Ceres. Her guidance and input in the project is much appreciated. It is her selfless efforts that helped us to grow from strength to strength and rise every time above.Our sponsor, TNPA, will be touched by the innocent response of the little ones. They shake their heads or pull faces when I ask them whether they will swim in dirty water again. They all shout NEVER! They like the idea to fill their lungs with air to its maximum capacity and float like starfish whenever they are in trouble in the water. Their facial expressions are priceless! Transnet National Ports Authority invested in a great project.'
