Water Safety

3 weeks ago, Class 1 have been going to the Glen Innes Aquatic Centre for swimming lessons. Here is a piece of writing that's kinda an advertisement about Water Safety. It explains how to stay water safe and what water safety is. Hope you enjoy! And a side note, DO NOT call the number that is provided in my writing. Thank you!

Should you wait til you’re drowning in water to finally learn how to swim? NO! Of course not! Well, NOW is YOUR chance to learn about water safety right in the comfort of your own home. So grab those swim trunks and goggles and let’s learn together!

Water Safety is more about smarts than fitness. Before going out swimming in the ocean, you should know of the conditions. This includes the weather, tide and surroundings. So make sure you have those things sussed.

If you’re in a situation in the ocean, a thing you need to remember is not to try to stand up. Once that is attempted, you’re sinking. Another thing to keep in mind is that you have to keep calm and not panic. Whatever your circumstances may be, one of the best ways to survive is keeping calm. This way, you will be able to preserve energy and you’ll have a lower chance of drowning.

If you have no idea how to swim, then when at beaches or at the pools you should keep to the shallow areas. Trying to swim in the deep ends without experience will result with death. You should probably wear a life-jacket or floaties.

Now, the best thing to ever do to better your understanding of water safety is LEARN how to swim. What you need to do is call 0800 WATER SAFE4LIFE now! Or visit the Aquatic Centre in Glen Innes for lessons. Don’t be a rock and sink! Be a tree log and FLOAT!

    I think the word you might have been looking for in paragraph 4 is conserve...
