Coffee Bay is 197 km’s from Port St John’s (3 hour drive one way) and a 4.5 hour drive from East London.The schools and houses are very close to the sea and drowning incidents, involving children, are well known by the learners.Debbie and Eoudia visited 3 schools, Pato JSS, Coffee Bay Primary and Tokazini JSS, and 1180 kids were taught about water safety in total.
