Free pantomime to keep kids alive

Drowning is the greatest cause of accidental death in the under five age group in Australia and 37 children drowned in 2006. According to former Olympic Swim Coach, Laurie Lawrence (pictured), this is a disgraceful statistic and he is doing something about it in a fun way.

Lauries passion for reducing preschool drownings resulted in the Kids Alive Do The Five water safety program and this entertaining and educational pantomime is coming to Lismore.

Created to teach young children the five steps to water safety, Kids Alive Do the Five features a colourful cast of characters, songs and dancing, and tells the tale of Boo, an alien who doesnt know how to swim.

The performance is at the Star Court Theatre in Molesworth St, Lismore, on Tuesday, February 20 at 10.30am and is free of charge.

For further enquiries phone the Kids Alive office on 07 5525 6820.
