Naturally, the school has taken many precautions when it comes to the safety of its students. During supervised swimming classes, the school nurse - certified in delivering first aid and CPR techniques - and the P.E. teachers are always on hand. Students who are still learning how to swim can opt to have lifejackets OR hang on to the recycled plastic-bottle rafts that they made in their TLE class. Additionally, students who only have basic swimming skills are only allowed to swim within the confines of the dry dock.
Every other Wednesday, when the weather is fine and the tide high, you can see HLC students learning how to swim or kayak during their P.E. class. Pretty soon, they'll be starting their surfing classes!
