Nippers

Hannah, and me attended to a projram called Nippers. It is ware you get to learn about how to save peoples life, so the first part was to practise running into the water as fast as you can to save people’s life. But it was really hard becuse the Austrailan waves and current is so strong it was hard to swim and really cold!!!! One person’s leg terned purple she was so cold. But Me and Hannah pushed threw it, next it was time to practise saving peoples life with surf bords. The waves were so huge. While I was riding the wave I lose control… And the wave flipped me over and I hit my chin on the sand (ouch!) Hannah did the same thing! But day after day we started to get the hang of it! One day before the compition we all learned the way to do get the person to breathe properly so first, if you see a guy or a girl suffacating look for anything dangeris (jelly fish) The next step is to speak to the person “are you okay?’ if she or he dosen ‘t say anything back that means trouble.Ask  someone to help to.And you stay behind and watch out for him/her. Put your hands ontop of each other and put your hands in the middle of its chest and use a sraight arm to pump it, for 30 quik pumps,and tilt the head back open the mouth and see if their any blood or vomate,then do mouth to mouth. do till the person coughs or some one comes to help!!! The next day was the compition we swam and do races it was so fun! but sadly me and Hannah had to go back to our homes.

The Wild Life Park

Me and Hannah went to a wild life park.  As we came in I was stunned!! Because the kangaroos were walking around, and getting petted by people. In other zoo’s the animals  were in cages.  And so me and Hannah all raced to a kangaroo and fed it some kangaroo food. Then we walked over to the koala section and saw some koalas crawling on the trees. Next, we searched for the Tasmanian Devils, we just saw a vary small one that trotted back to his home.  We were going to see the eagles, but on the way, we stopped to feed a joey and its mother. But the joey crawled in its mother pouch (amazing!) I will never forget that sight!! Then we stopped to see an Emu, it looked like a small ostrich. Then we worked our way up to the wombats. They were really lazy, (unimpressive) so we decided to stop by the reptile house, we saw lots of pythons and really big snakes. We also spotted some really cute turtles and we made our way over to the snake show. The snake man told us about how to be safe when we see a snake. We all got tired and slowly went back home.
