Children avoid boo boos

By EMMA CORNFORD

WISEOWL, Lifesaver Lil and Boo the alien made their way to the Grafton Community Centre yesterday to teach more than 1000 school students about water safety. The federally funded performance was part of the Laurie Lawrence Kids Alive, do the Five national education program. The plot revolves around the mischievous alien Boo, who comes down to earth and refuses to learn the safety rules. But when Boo gets into trouble in the pool, he realises the importance of water safety. Performer Leah Donnelly said the show was effective. "The kids really learn because it's fun and there's song and dance ... then they go home and tell their parents about it and make sure the pool is fenced," she said.
