I think kid’s at Tamaki Primary School should have swimming twice a year because drowning is the third highest cause of death, so it’s a good idea to learn to swim.
Not many people know 41 people have drowned in the last five month’s because some of our beaches are not safe.
Adults should teach kid’s how to swim so they can survive when swimming on their own.They will be able to help themselves or someone else if they get into trouble.
NZ is surrounded by water so we need to learn how to swim.Learning to swim is exciting, fun and could save your life or someone else’s life.
Ms Hansell I hope I have persuaded you to let us go swimming twice a year.So that we can learn more skills.
