Learn the basics of water safety with qualified instructors. This activity is particularly eye catching to me as we are few months away from summer and many families will be visiting pools and beaches, therefore, have some knowledge about water safety just before summer, is particularly important to the community.
All activities in this festival are set to give participants opportunities to learning new things, advance their existing knowledge and inform them about available learning opportunities.
