The Health & Well-being series provides the opportunity for youngsters aged 8 years plus – and their families – to learn about the importance of water safety in a fun and engaging way outside of a pool environment.
These educational activity booklets have been created by STA to teach children how to stay safe in the pool and in the sea, as well as general water safety awareness in different environments and potential hazards.
Crosswords, word searches, quizzes are all featured in the colourful 40-page booklet to help teach the following topics in a fun and engaging way:
- How to be Water Safe
- How to be Pool Safe
- How to be Surf Safe
- How be Sun Safe
- How to be Enviro Safe
With half of primary school children unable to swim 25 meters and many schools sidelining lessons, coupled with drowning still being the third highest cause of death in youngsters, the importance of teaching water safety outside of a pool environment and in the classroom becomes a much bigger priority.
STA’s Health & Well-being booklets offer a practical solution to teaching water safety to youngsters whether you are a swim school, leisure facility, or school. They are also a great way to engage with the wider community with groups like holidays clubs, brownies and scouts.
