On Thursday 28th June and Friday 29th June Hove Park School took sixty year 7 students to Brighton Beach. Both days were gloriously sunny and perfect for some lifesaving.
They were all taught vital lifesaving skills and first aid techniques by Brighton’s famous lifeguards.
Hove Park students were put through their paces, trying out the latest beach rescue techniques. They also learnt how to use the lifeguards rescue boards, saving casualties from the water. The experience taught the students how to save lives in and out of the water, and what dangers to look for whilst keeping themselves safe.
Mr Lowrie, who co-ordinated the trip said ‘All the students had a fantastic experience learning some vital lifesaving skills. We are already looking to book in again next year. The course is run and delivered in a fantastic way. We would again like to thank Surf Life Saving for putting on another exceptional experience for our students, we very much look forward to working with them again next year.
He went on to say how impressed he was with the Lifeguards professionalism and care that was given to Hove Parks students. Their attention to the safety of our students was nothing short of superb. It was also brilliant fun.
"Well done to all involved." - Mr Lowrie
