On Wednesday 6th February, the RNLI came to school to talk to the children about water safety. The children learnt about the important jobs the RNLI carry out to keep people safe and to rescue people in difficulty.

We learnt about what the flags mean at the beach, the role of the lifeguards and how we can help ourselves if we get into trouble in the water.  Some children also dressed up in lifeguard clothing and the clothes that the jet ski rescuers wear.

You can find out more about the RNLI and their work with youth education at www.rnli.org.uk/youtheducation

Children can also take part in the free water safety lessons in Scarborough during the summer holiday. To sign up, please visit www.swimsafe.org.uk
