As the college came together in Week 5 to partake in the swimming carnival, OSHC took the opportunity to ensure we knew how to be water safe. Throughout the week we discussed safety around oceans, lakes, rivers, and pools. The students used crafts to learn about this topic, including making life jacket origami, life saver watercolor rings, 3-D floaties and beach scenes that showed swimming between flags.
