Mairangi bay surf life saving education
8.45 the bus was leaving school to take the year 7 classes (room19 and 20) to Mairangi bay for surf live saving education.
During the drive to Mairangi Bay I was waiting patiently on the bus but inside I was excited. The children on the bus were full of laughter who knows why? . Here we are finally in Mairangi bay , the students seated on the grass and listened to the following instructions that were given from Mrs Nua . We then strolled up into the club house to meet the life guards told by the names as Meghan,Recaul and Rosy.
After the few boring activity's we then went out side an played some beach games which were Octopus life guards coming
The teachers were playing and the children were chasing after them like they were dogs side to side
. We were having loads of fun.
Yay ! After eating my lunch I quickly got changed into my swimming togs ready to get into some water activity's .
For our water activity's only one of the life guards could stay with us as the other to life guards Requal and Rosy had an important job to do . After everyone had changed we all gathered around Meghan to listen to the following instructions She explained to us and the teachers ,"teachers make a box in the water and that will be the children's Boundaries Boys have the Boigie boards and the girls can use the tubes so off we went into the water splashing and swimming it was loads of fun
Washing off to go home wiping our selves down who knows when we will be back. We said our thankyou's for sharing the day with us and we hope we could come back soon . I learnt alot of information at the surf life saving education we jumped on the bus and drove back to school it was a fun day everyone was a bit tired but wanted to stay for more .
