Schools Safe boating programme delivery continues

Matt in action

Despite losing a few days to high winds and rain over the last week, another 40 children from Waterloo School undertook the schools safe boating programme on Tuesday. This delivery was thanks to the support provided by Pub Charity for Hutt Valley schools. Wellington Ocean Sports is on track to complete the Hutt Valley delivery this term. We are also working with other funders to ensure all children in the Wellington Region have access to safe boating education.

Recreational boating continues to be a major contributor to New Zealand’s appalling drowning statistics and we are fighting on the frontline to address this through our Coastguard and Water Safety New Zealand approved programme. As well as water safety outcomes, the schools safe boating programme provides a pathway for longer term involvement in ocean sports, including the delivery of NCEA Unit Standards.
