A RATHER uncommon and very large visitor has dropped in on Kennington Primary School as part of Water Safety Week.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter, usually seen patrolling coastline, made a journey to several schools in northern Victoria to highlight the importance of water safety.

The reminder was a timely one, coinciding with the release of the Victorian Drowning Report that showed inland waterways to be the number one drowning location in the country.

Kennington student Aaron Cheng told of his own experience with water safety, while Life Saving Victoria’s Greg Scott said parents and children need to play it safe around waterways during summer.
