Lifesaving classroom lesson

STUDENTS at Kilcummin State School had a special visit from lifesavers last week to learn more about water safety.

Demelza, Bridgitte and Hannah came to the school and principal Glenn Cafferky said students looked forward to their visit.

"The students loved dressing up in the Surf Life Saving Queensland outfits and showed they already knew a great deal about beach safety," he said.

"They learnt about the meaning of the various flags and about some of the dangerous jellyfish that inhabit the waters off Queensland and found out that jellyfish don't have a brain."

The Telstra Beach to Bush program also visited schools in Tieri, Middlemount, Mistake Creek, Clermont, Capella, Moranbah and Valkyrie, spreading its community safety message.
