The Year 9 students last year learnt an understanding of the lifesaving principles embodied in the 4 components of water-rescue education - judgment, knowledge, skill and fitness. The students worked hard, swimming numerous laps, displaying a variety of skills and managing a rescue situation whilst also passing a theory component.
Some students gained the Bronze Star which is an excellent preparation for success in Bronze Medallion at a later date. Participants develop problem-solving and decision-making skills individually and in partners. Candidates learn CPR and develop the lifesaving skills needed to be their own lifeguard.
We were very proud of the enthusiasm and engagement of the class and congratulate those who gained the qualifications.
