Beach Education at Waimarama


Today we traveled out to Waimarama beach for a day of instruction from the Surf Life Saving team. We couldn't have asked for a better day with temperatures forecasted to top 31degrees. The Lifeguards taught us about building our knowledge of beaches and how to keep ourselves safe. Everyone learnt new skills and had an amazing day.

  4. I learnt that they carried pocket knives on their rescue boats incase someone was stuck in rope. I had an awesome day and I really enjoyed going out for a swim especially since it was so hot!

  15. It was great fun. I particularly enjoyed the swim. One thing I will remember is that you must always have an adult with you when you go swimming.

  16. It was an awesome day. My favourite part was learning how to recognise a rip and currents .We also learnt to know your limits and if the waves are above your head then you
    should not go in.
