Rookie lifeguards go snorkelling!

Class 7 are all taking part in the after school pool sessions this year. Every term we will be doing something different. This term we are starting off with snorkelling and octopush skills. Along with Mr Geddes and Ms Spence we are being coached in the water by two pupils who started their octopush in P7 at Glaitness.

The boys listen to Thorfinn.
 We have been practising duck diving and clearning our snorkels.
The girls practise their duck dives.

We have been using fins.

The boys look confident underwater.
Alongside developing these skills we are now all taking part in the Rookie Lifeguard course which will help us and others to stay safe in and around water. We will be working our way through the course at our own individual pace, so everyone can take part and achieve either the bronze, silver or maybe even gold certificate.
