Year 6 Waterwise

Year 6 have once again been busy outdoors. Following one full week back in the classroom after a 5-day camp, the students were challenged to develop their skills in EOTC (Education Outside the Classroom), this time out on the water at Murrays Bay. Each class spent a day on the Waterwise programme learning how to rig and sail an optimist boat. Students discovered how to tie a bowline knot, steer a boat using a tiller and most importantly to duck their head when the boom swings across when the boat tacks. 

Waterwise is a voluntary organisation which aims to promote water safety and build children’s confidence on the water. Pinehurst School is one of three schools who are part of the Murrays Bays schools Waterwise programme.
