Today we went to Castlecliff Beach for the whole day to learn about beach safety. We learnt lots.
There must be an adult always watching when you are swimming
you put your hand straight up, not waving it, when you need help
You must use the right equipment - no floating gear
There is no whit wash on rips
Never swim alone
Slip, slop, slap, wrap, slurp and slide
IRB stand for inflatable rescue boat
Rips are discoloured and calm
Stay between the flags
You must know your limit
If in doubt stay out!
