What does a Lifeguard do?

Description

The role of a Lifeguard is to monitor and supervise aquatic activities. They are in charge of making sure all users follow the pre-established security measures to avoid injuries and other accidents. Lifeguards are also responsible for responding to any emergency that may occur in a timely manner.

Dear Parents,

We are very excited to have the Primary Students have their first coaching session at the new Aquatics Pool! I will be collect students from the classroom today to walk them through expectations as well as how to get to the pool. We hope after today students will be Principled and be able to go to coaching themselves. Please may I ask when signing out your child that parents wait at the walk way as shown in the picture below. Please note a member of SEA staff will be there with the sign-out sheet. Please be reminded if you are running late, students will be taken to the Primary Library for supervision. In the sports hall there will be Secondary Basketball, Volleyball and even games taking place and therefore we would like to keep the sport’s hall cleared.
