OWEN Open Water Education Network was set up in memory of 12-year Owen Jenkins. This programme aims to act as a resource for children, young people and adults by providing education and support and promoting water safety.
Monday 10th July 2017 was a tragic day for many. 12-year-old Owen Jenkins from Beeston Rylands went into the water at Beeston Weir and lost his life. He died a HERO, having gone into the water to rescue two friends who were struggling in the strong currents. Owen managed to help the first girl to safety, when he went back to save the second girl he was taken by the current and went under the water, the current was too strong, and sadly Owen drowned.
The charity has been set up to educate children, young people and adults about the dangers of open water, how to spot potential hazards and dangers, know what to do in an emergency and how to protect yourself by staying dry. The programme teaches young adults how to deliver the programme to their peers with the support and training from the OWEN team. The primary school programme is being written in a way that the children of that age can comprehend with the terminology used being age appropriate. Activities, animations and books using primary school children’s voices and drawings will be used in the primary school package that will be accessible to all schools.
