Mairangi Bay

On a cold wet damp day all the year 7s went on a field trip this was no ordinary trip because we went to a beach and this beach was over the harbour bridge it was a long drive to our destination but it was worth the drive because it was going to be a fun day at the beach.

When we arrived at the beach every body was so excited that they ran out side of the bus to see what the beach looked like when we went to the Life Guards beach house. When we went to the station no one was there but then Mrs Nua said to Feki to go upstairs and see if they where in there he said “ we have to come up here”. When all of us went up stirs we had to put our bags in the corner where all of the were when we sat down on the floor the Life Guard told us what we were going to do on that day.

The first thing we did was going to learn about the surf and rips and witch are the deadliest and witch are the safest. Rosy who was one of the life guards said that the deadliest one was Shore Bracer because it can knock you over on your back and kill you. The safest one Rosy said was the spiller because it Spills you on to the beach and that is safe. Rosy also told us you tell if there’s is a Rip because it is calm and still she said you will be more safe in the waves then in the calm places.

When we finished that activity we went on to the beach and played some sand activity’s we played octopus and drew on the sand and played our own games like rugby, touch and all kinds of others when we finished we went for a swim the boys went first with the bogey boards and the girls went first with the life guards tube when we finished our turns with the bogey boards and the girls finished there turns with the tubes we all swapped things. When we finished our swim we all had to get changed and get ready to go home.


On that day all of us got an experience like we got before because we had never been to a surf life saving trip.
