We headed over to Mairangi Bay this week to learn about beach safety. Students were refreshed on their understanding of how to be sun smart, how to stay safe when swimming, how to recognise a rip in the ocean, and what to do if they get into difficulty when swimming. We also had time for a bit of fun and games with rescue tube relay races, a game of octopus, beach flags and some activities to build confidence in the water. There may or may not have been some seaweed thrown around also.
Here are some photos of some of the day's events:
