Safety Week A Success
Through the week of 24th - 29th October, our staff began the journey of educating your children's young minds about being safe around water.
Students participated in activities such a treading water, water safety quizzes, and taking clothes off in water. With some of the older age groups we wanted to challenge them by staging a real life scenario and teaching the students how to help rescue a victim in the appropriate manner.
These activities were designed to help us reach our goal to hopefully give the students some knowledge to take away with them that will help keep them safe when around water.
As the week comes to a close we pass the baton on to you. We encourage you to keep talking about water safety with your children, to see them educated on what to do if placed in an emergency around water. Continue to ask simple questions such as; What number do you call in an emergency? Where do you swim at the beach? Are you allowed to go swimming by yourself?
A thank you to our local lifeguards patrolling our beaches daily to make them safe for us to swim at. If you have any other questions about water safety, you can visit our local Surf Life Saving Club website, by clicking here.
