Students learn beach safety

Year 1 students and teachers from Umina Beach Public School have been on a Beach Safety Excursion, principal Ms Lyn Davis has reported.

“We noted all the ways we can be safe in our beautiful beachside
community, by the roads and waterways,” she said.

“We were met by the head of Surf Life Saving at the UminaBeach Club and also met two champion surf lifesavers.

“The students were shown all the safety equipment and learned how this is used in rescues and beach patrols.

“The lifesavers taught the students about the safe places to swim, sun safety and also how to complete a surf rescue,” Ms Davis said.

“We played some lifesaving games and, when we got back to school, we produced posters with a safety message.

“These outdoor learning experiences tied in with our English unit on friendship,” Ms Davis said.
