Lessons in water safety

SURVIVAL STRATEGIES: Oamaru children learned about boat safety during the Oscar programme this week.

They experienced using life jackets, practised getting in and out of a boat and learnt how to survive and help others in the water.

Oscar at Fenwick organiser Jenny McCulloch said the children had a fantastic time. “They absolutely loved it,” she said.

“It was about getting used to life jackets, falling out of boats with them on and learning what to do when in trouble.”
