Today we escaped the Waitahuna wind to a sunny day in Kaka Point. The children spent the day with Charlotte and Sophie teaching them the key aspects of Beach Education.
It is rewarding for Teachers and Parents alike to hear the knowledge that the children build on with every visit, from the New Entrants learning for the first time to the Years 6's now being confident with their knowledge of surf and safety.
The sun shone as we enjoyed the surf, swimming between the flags.
As a rural community with the Waitahuna River a big part of all our children's lives we must all continue to educate and inform them about the dangers while also showing them the fun-times that can be enjoyed in the water.
