The PAWS programme is a comprehensive educational resource for primary schools that teaches basic water safety skills. It was developed by Irish Water Safety, in partnership with The Educational Company of Ireland, and teaches children how to be safe around water in homes, farms, pools, beaches and on our waterways.
PAWS incorporates all aspects of the physical education aquatics strand of the primary school curriculum and outlines life-saving guidelines for children of all ages.
The boys and girls in Ms. Bell and Ms. Mc Grath’s second class completed this programme and received their PAWS certificates. They really enjoyed the discussions and activities included in this programme.
