Primary School students learn water survival skills

“During Friday swimming we have been teaching kids survival skills in case they get into trouble in water, very important for kids who attend a school surrounded by water,” Physical Education Teacher Nathan explains. “So we did a lesson about swimming in clothes for them to understand what it feels like if they fall in fully dressed. The kids were shattered after 30 seconds, but then we would let them float on their backs for two minutes and then carry on swimming, rather than holding on to the sides. You can float for ages and survive doing that.”
