Water safety: the risks are real
Schoolies often head to the beach or the river to cool off and have a good time during their celebrations.
It's important to remember that there are inherent risks connected in, on and around the water.
- "Play it safe, take your mates" - never swim or surf alone
- Never swim when you have been drinking or taking other drugs
- Don't swim at night
- Check it is OK to swim before you get in
- If you don't know the depth of the water, don't dive in
- Look before you leap
