Play safe

Australia, 1974

A still image from Play safe

The fun of swimming and participating in water sports can be spoiled unless basic safety rules and techniques are known, practised and used. This comprehensive water safety film covers all aspects from drown-proofing to the use of life-jackets, to a full illustration of the Royal Life Saving Award technique of safe non-contact rescue. Suitable for upper primary and secondary levels.
