WATER SAFETY TIP: Be wise like the bullfrog. When you are in trouble in the water do not panic. Fill your lungs to the maximum with air like the bullfrog fills his air sack. This will help you to become buoyant and then you can float like a starfish and get to the side. Signal for help by waving your hand above your head.
BE WATERWISE IN PAARL:
During a grade 8 assembly address, Waterwise Instructor, Desireé Pinetown, stressed the importance of water safety rules especially now that it is warming up and asked the learners to refrain from swimming in farm dams and in rivers. Murky water can be extremely dangerous as you do not know how deep it is.
At Windmeul Primary School the learners enjoyed the WaterWise lesson. They loved the PLAN demonstration and know not to jump in the water to save a peer that is in trouble.
At Langabuya Primary School the learners had great fun participating in reviving a drowning victim.
