Surviving Summer on the Gold Coast

It’s the middle of summer 2017. We are slowly but surely getting back into our English studies! This week in the Elementary class was assessment week, so all the students have to recover from their holidays. Most of you were able to revise your fundamental grammar as well as polishing up and expanding your English. This time of year is the hottest time of the year in Australia. The average temperature during the summer days is 30 degrees Celsius, it is the perfect time to go to the beach or pool and have a swim and relax in the summer sun. Please take care when you’re out in the Australian sun. It is hot and full of ultra violet rays that can damage your skin and could lead to skin cancer.

Please be wise. Before you go out in the sun, remember to ‘Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek, Slide’. Wow! What does that all mean? Slip on a shirt, Slop on 30+ sunscreen, Slap on a hat, Seek shade or shelter when it is hot and Slide on some sunglasses, be wise and you will enjoy the Aussie sun and the great outdoors.

Oh and one more thing. When you go to the beach, please remember to swim between the red and yellow striped flags. This is a safe area where the lifeguards can see you and help you if needed.slip_slop_slap_600
