Self Rescue 5 Oct 2019

In the pool Year 6 have been learning techniques to help them if ever they get into difficulties in open water. When treading water they have been trying to use less energy which is quite tricky in 3.5m of water, but at least there weren’t any waves today!

The children also learnt to respond to surf life saving hand signals, what to do if caught in a rip current, how to call for help and how the HELP position can preserve heat and energy when in open seas.

We have some super swimmers and their stamina if improving week by week.
