Drowning is a big problem, not only in New Zealand, but in many other countries as well. Around 150 - 180 people in  N.Z die every year because of drowning. This is caused by not knowing how to swim, and let alone  float.

To ensure that none of the class 1 students will end up being part of the N.Z statistics, Class 1 went swimming at the Glen Innes Aquatic Centre. I was looking forward for swimming but unfortunately, I couldn't swim till the next day.

As soon as the sliding doors opened to the pools, my nose got attacked by a powerful smell. “It smells like the pools, like chlorine,” accidentally saying out loud. I quickly protected my nose from the weird smelling scent. But at the same time I was happy that I had a chance of ending my possibilities of drowning.

I hope that these past two weeks of swimming has helped, not only myself but the rest of class 1 when they are in bad situations in and around water. Now I can be sure that no class 1 students will be part of the N.Z drowning statistics.

I love the way you put the thought and effort in to recrafting this piece of writing. Good job. Maybe you can find an appropriate photo too?
