Water Safety
Rookie Lifeguards

This term twelve budding rookie lifeguards took to the water to learn about water safety, first aid and experience new life skills.

Over the term they have successfully completed a number of tasks and challenges, including using pool equipment to rescue a casualty in the water, basic first aid skills including CPR, a range of different lifesaving adapted swimming strokes and even making a floatation device out of a t-shirt and pair of shorts.

Following their final assessment, it was fantastic to award all twelve children with their Bronze Level 1 Rookie Lifeguarding Award certificate and badge. Well done all!

Next term the same children will hope to make a splash, taking on the next challenge of the Bronze Level 2 Rookie Lifeguarding Award.
