School beach day

Today I helped out at the school's beach safety day. I spent the whole day with the year 1-3 students while they learned about keeping safe in the water, keeping covered up out of the water and lots of playing to make it all fun. It was interesting to watch my children interact with the other children and also to get some time out in the sun. Despite the beautiful weather the children were only allowed to go paddling 6 at a time (with adults in between each child holding their hands) due to the big waves. This turned out to be a sensible decision as the first group we took out was almost swept under a huge wave.... so much for just getting wet up to their knees - armpits was a little closer to the truth. Fortunately I had taken a change of clothes!
