Physical Education – Drowning Prevention

On Monday 4th February, staff in the Physical Education and the Sports department participated in a professional development opportunity run by Drowning Prevention Auckland held in the school. We learnt about safe entries and exits, breath control, floating and treading water, survival strokes and using lifejackets. These skills will be taught to all year 9 and year 10 students in Physical Education lessons in term 1. It is important that your son/daughter brings a change of gear in order to participate and learn these important techniques.
