Wacky Hair Day Google Meet
After lots of discussion about the terrible state of our hair due to lockdown, we decided that we should do a wacky hair day and attend our Friday morning google meet with our wacky hair. Such fun and some fabulous creativity!

WaterSafeTraining session


What an exciting session this morning learning skills to keep ourselves safe in and around the water. The weather was a little chilly and the wet life jackets were cold to put on but lots of fun and learning took place.
Next week we look forward to our second session where we have to bring some old long pants and a long sleeved top or pyjamas to wear over our togs in the pool.
I wonder why we we need these...
Have you had water safety training this year? If so, what did you learn?
