I have never been ship wrecked on a deserted island. I am sure we would all react in different ways. We have all seen the reality programs like `I’m a Celebrity – get me out of here.’ Some elements of some of the programs were vastly entertaining.
Collect water in as many containers as possible. The receptacles would need to range from a hat to a bowl.
In very dry environments condensation forms over night on different surfaces.
If you are very thirsty then tie rags around your ankles – the dew gathers on the cloth. Simply wring the cloth out -and there is water!
Catch fish –as fish contain moisture. Squeeze the raw fish in a cloth to extract the water.
Your Eleven Plus Survival Guide needs to include:

Being realistic about your child’s chances.
Collecting books and commercially available resources
Listening to your child’s thoughts.
Anything must be better than drinking from a cloth tied to the ankles.
Good luck to all concerned.
