Normally we like to immerse our students in English, but last Tuesday our students got immersed in refreshing salt water.
Every few months we like to organise a trip to a local beach to talk with lifeguards about safety at Australian beaches. This time we visited Kings Beach and students listened to our local lifeguard give a short talk. Students were encouraged to ask for advice about swimming at our beaches and how to survive in the surf if they get into trouble.
When the serious part of the afternoon was over, students striped down to their bikinis or board shorts and cavorted in the small waves. Everyone really enjoyed the afternoon and we all look forward to doing it again soon.
