Live Learn Survive’s Education Program

Curriculum aligned quizzes and talks for schools and libraries

42 people drown globally EVERY HOUR of EVERY DAY.

The leading cause of death in children aged 5-14 in our region is drowning. The World Health Organisation advise that other than keeping kids away from water the leading point of action is to teach school aged children about water safety.

We teach skills that save lives whilst making learning fun!
