Students Awarded at Life Saving Programme

Throughout term 1 a number of boys have been participating in the Royal NZ Life Saving programme.

For most of the Bronze Medallion group this was their first time doing a Life Saving course even though some had been involved in Surf Life Saving.  They worked really hard to get through the practical sessions at the pool as well as theory and First Aid sessions at school.
