Class 1 had an amazing day at the Bluff beach with the surf lifesaving super star Ben Holtaway.
We started out in the beach hut and learnt all about beach safety. We learnt where and when it is safe to go into the sea to swim or surf and what to do if we get into trouble.
We swim in between the red and yellow flags, otherwise you’ll go out to sea – Elowen
Next we met the life guards. We learnt all about the important role they have and what they do to keep us safe on the beach. We even got a demonstration of one of the lifeguards rescuing his friend who had got into trouble in the sea with the jet ski. Next we had a go on the rescue board and were excited to sit on the jet ski and quad bike.
I liked going on the jet ski best and the quad bike. Joseph
After the jet ski fun, we played some amazing beach games including the assault course with the sea weed cave of doom.
I liked playing in the wet sand best – Jacob
Finally, the highlight of the day was going surfing. The tide was perfect and the children had an amazing time swimming, splashing and surfing in the gentle waves.
I like surfing the best. I paddled on the surf board – Seth
Class 1 would like to say a massive thanks you to Ben and all the life guards for making the day so much fun and enjoyable.
