Waterwise at Stillwater
In February 2017 we brought the Waterwise NZ schools program to our boating club, as a venue to promote and encourage water safety and skills for children.
It proved to be a great success, and we are now authorised to continue this program at the club. The location is well suited for these activities, and we extend a warm welcome to all children in the Hibiscus Schools region to come along.
Waterwise is run here by volunteers, mums and dads, anyone who loves what it gives our kids. We would appreciate help and support from those who would like to become a volunteer or instructor.
Application forms for both participants and helpers can be downloaded here:
