On Tuesday Room 1, 3 and 5 went to Waihi Beach to participate in the Surf Sense programme.
During the day we played games and we learnt how to be safe in the surf.
The five safety rules were
- Swim between the flags
- Listen to the lifeguard
- Make sure a adult is watching you
- Never swim alone
- Be sunsmart
Max the life guard, demonstrated how to rescue someone using the IRB (inflatable rescue boat). Grace and Alexander were excellent life guards.
The best part of the day was when we went into the large surf and took revenge on the parents!!
