Jacqui McAllister reports:'Last month and this month, I concentrated on KwaMashu Ethekuleni Primary. I noticed that the children are not very knowledgeable about water safety, however, they have all swum in the sea. They remembered the PLAN part of the WaterWise lesson, which had previously been done in a rather large assembly group; so this was very heartening – the message had definitely sunk in.''We did Rip Currents and CPR this month. I also concentrated on the RULES. I explained the reason for Life Guard Flags, and the importance of them. They learnt that there is generally a Rip Current on either side of the flags, and now know why they need to stay between the flags. So the message to them was more especially, STAY BETWEEN THE FLAGS, and if there are NO flags – DO NO swim at that beach. This they understood and accepted readily.waterwise 01awaterwise 018_131959aCamera 14MP-9PC
