Water Safety Program

Water Safety Program

This term, students of Noble Park English Language School are extremely fortunate to receive a fantastic Water Safety Program delivered by Life Saving Victoria at Bon Beach. Students could go in the water with lifeguards to learn how to stay safe in the water. Students could play with surfboards, wear life jackets, learn how to float and play lots of fun beach games.

As many drowning incidents happen among new arrivals, we find it extremely important for our students to learn how to be safe around water. No matter they are children, teenagers or adults, nobody should swim alone. Also, we should always read the signs on the beach and always swim between the yellow flags.

Last week we had 2 International Day concerts. One was at the Noble Park campus and the other was at the Casey campus. Both concerts were a huge success. The theme this year is “Different People, Stand Together”. The concert celebrates multiculturalism as there are students and staff from over twenty different nations at our school. Students showcased their culture through costumes, dancing and music.

Thank you all the staff and students who worked so hard all term practising and co-ordinating the concert.
