Suf life saving education

Last week the yr 7’s of Pt England school went to Mairangi bay for the surf life saving education. I was wondering if the view of Mairangi bay was going to be wonderful or not. As soon as we arrived at Mairangi bay the view seemed alright too me. So we went up into the safe house and was instructed on the things that will keep us safe when we are around the water. It was time for a swim i couldn't wait to have a nice refreshing swim. I was swallowing water like it was my favourite. We were boogie boarding like people surfing in Hawaii, Even though the weather was horrible.

We had an amazing brilliant time at Mairangi bay learning new things like saving lives and how to be safe in the water.

Parakai Pools

On a hot sunny day I was so relieved that my family and I were going to parakai springs. We set off on our two hour journey.

As soon as we reached our destination i was pleased to see plenty of people having fun. I had just put down our bags when suddenly I heard my name. I turned around and there was Judah, a boy from our school, so I said, "Hi" and carried on with what I was doing.

“Finally I can go for a swim," I said. As soon as I hit the water I felt refreshed like I had been drinking lots of cola. After a long time in the pool I decided to go to the hydro slide. "3 2 1 GO!". I slid off like a car spinning out of control. My speed that I was going at was terrific. “Here’s the end I said”. I had been spat out from the hydra slide crashing into the pool.

So, our trip to Parakai Pools involved lots of fun and plenty of laughter.
