Water Safety Education

Water safety education is a classroom based tool used to equip children, communities and South Africans at large with the necessary know, knowledge regarding safety in and outside water.

Water safety education can be done anywhere where people can sit and listen. It is innovate in its nature as it allows children to sing, recite, do role plays and puppet shows as they engage with the water safety presenters. The interactive approach is important as it creates fun and interest for the audience especially school children. The material comes in different African languages to cater for our Rainbow Nation.

The lessons are supported by promotional material that can be send home e.g. pamphlets, brochures, game boards, bumper stickers and sunscreen creams. Water education allows Swimming South Africa to reach out to al South African by sending the one life saving message.
