Water Safety Ireland's PAWS (Primary Aquatics Water Safety) programme outlines the essential life-saving guidelines that every child needs to know. Learn skills that can save lives.

With a wealth of tips and advice, and all sorts of interactive games and puzzles to reinforce the lessons learned, PAWS delivers valuable lessons that are simple common sense. Every parent is more than qualified to guide their children through them.

These lessons will guide you through Water Safety at home, on farms, in swimming pools, rivers, lakes and of course at the beach.

Splash the Bear and River the Otter will show how to stay safe at these locations, and how keep your family and friends safe too! By taking part not only will you be safer on or near the water, you'll become a PAWS HERO!
