Water Safety Ireland’s PAWS (Primary Aquatics Water Safety) outlines the essential life-saving guidelines that every child needs to know.
Written and designed for all age groups, with beautiful illustrations, a wealth of tips and advice, and all sorts of interactive games and puzzles to reinforce the lessons learned, PAWS offers simple common sense and every parent is more than qualified to guide their children through the lessons.
English and Irish digital lesson books are available with interactive puzzles to match. The lessons take just an hour or two and are completely FREE.
When your child has finished, these newfound skills make them a PAWS HERO. Complete the form below and we’ll send them a digital PAWS HERO certificate that they can colour in and make their own..
