Weekly blog - Article

This week I learned about things that have been going on around the world. Here is some information that I found out the 1st one was that a countdown security guard died because a teenage boy punched him in the head because the security guard was suspicious about his behavior. Another article I read was about a white kiwi that missed his birthday because he had an infection. Reading this about the world is really good so that you can be aware about the things that are going on and so that you can be prepared.

It is important to know how to swim so got to you local pools and learn how to swim or even if you want swimming lesson you can also go down to the pool.
