Year 8 Water Safety by Ms Michelle Cramond

Year 8 Water Safety

The Year 8's have been looking at Water Safety as part of their Health Physical Education (HPE) programme. 

Last week, 8Hm brought clothes to swim in to simulate falling into the water fully clothed enabling students to experience the heaviness of garments when fully wet, the use of survival strokes and how to take clothing off while in the water. 

 Josef "It was really tiring and it felt weird".

Louis "It was hard and even with lighter clothes, it dragged you down down".

Nevaeh "I was being dragged underwater and it was quite scary. I was getting so tired after such a short time. I could imagine what it would be like in real-life".
