WE ARE WATER SAFE!
This term Room 18 and 19 are learning the value of swimming safely in the water and on a boat. The opportunity made possible by Kiwisport funding and the Otara Leisure Centre staff. The programme is each Monday for the term and each week the children, parents and teachers have been excited about the new learning children will gain from the experience.
Room 19 boys have learnt a lot already and wanted to share this learning with you so far…
I have learnt that it is important to wear a life jacket on a boat every time. By Latrell
We learnt that you need to take warm clothing and signalling devices on a boat trip so you can stay warm and can get rescue teams attention. By Asera
If you are in the water you need to make a huddle to stay warm from each other’s body heat and keep injured friends alert and protected. By Sila
And do you know where the REFLECTORS are located on a life jacket?
While we can’t wait to share with you more learning in the weeks ahead, until then stay safe and ALWAYS WEAR YOUR LIFE JACKET… IT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE!
