Nearly 11,000 elementary and middle school students across the province of British Columbia received important boat and water safety education through the WaterWise Wisdom Program this season.
Led by enthusiastic Team Members, Jen Lee & Jenny Gleimius, the WaterWise Team traveled the Lower Mainland, Interior, and Island regions, providing free boat and water safety education to youth. The Team covered topics such as risks of cliff jumping, lifejacket safety, the dangers of boating and drinking, and how to be an advocate for their own safety when in or around the water. Schools were encouraged to 'Share It!' as students participated in the Team's #CaughtYouSharingIt school contest.
