Lifeguards 'Prep the Pool'

27 May 2022

EHS students were proud to serve as lifeguards at the Commonwealth Games 'Prep the Pool' test event last weekend at Sandwell Aquatics Centre.

They lifeguarded on different days and rotas, working with other staff from Friday to Sunday to cover the weekend. Our very own Mrs Hayward acted as Duty Manager for all the lifeguards on the Friday and trained some in Pool Extraction Board as they had not used one before. The girls experienced what it is like to lifeguard a huge venue, and all the different considerations and pressures that come with that.

One Pupil, Afia, even made it onto ITV Central News when the camera cast over the diving pool where she was lifeguarding.

Lifeguarding the test event was a fantastic experience for the girls and we now wait to see when we can put our names down for the games!
