Week 2: Swimming

This week we started our swimming sessions down at Cameron Pools. We all met our coaches and learnt about water safety. Here is some of our learning...

"It's important to swim between the flags because if you don't you can get into trouble." - Jemma

"If the water on the ocean is rough and there is a smooth part that is a rip and you need to stay away from it." - Nathaniel

"Hypothermia is when your body temperature drops too low and you actually can die from it. So you need to wear something warm in the water like a wetsuit." - Vitaraag

"You always need an adult when you are around the water and they need to supervise you. This means that they need to have their eyes on you in case you get hurt."

Do you have any other water safety tips you would like to share with us?
