Boat Building

We are designing boats that will carry one student across the width of the pool.

Some true 'Give It A Go' students visited the Dive Zone yesterday. They learned how to take a Giant Stride into the water, tip backwards off a boat, huddle, form a survival chain and get under a boat to find air. Some great safety and survival lessons.
