Once they’ve done the quiz, there’s a video to watch on cold water shock that shows students how to react if they find themselves in cold water unexpectedly.

There’s also a matching task to teach the pupils about what different flags mean on lifeguarded beaches.

If your school has a voting system facility, you may wish to use it for this activity.

Play this video to help share our key water safety messages and bring the work of the RNLI to life for your young people.
