The Swim to Survive Program is a program that helps people to survive in situations like a boat crash. Grade 4 students had three lessons in the pool where they learned important skills that could help to save their lives around water. During the first lesson we all had to wear a lifejacket and after that we had the choice to wear a lifejacket or not to. They taught us how to roll into water and recover so if we ever fall out of a boat we will be able to find the surface.  We also practiced treading water for a minute so we can stay at the surface until someone finds us and helps you out of the water.  We played games like when we were treading water we had to keep a ball out of our side of the pool and the team that has the most balls on their side at the end of the game loses.  We also swam for 50 meters without stopping to help to build our endurance so that we can have a better chance of swimming to safety.
