Room 9's Manaiakalani Film Festival Movie

Manaiakalani Swimming from Robyn Anderson on Vimeo.

Since 2001 an average 120 people a year have drowned in NZ waters because they didn't know how to keep themselves safe. The Water Safety NZ website highlights the fact that if kiwi kids don’t learn to swim the drowning rates in our country will become catastrophic, that means really bad! In term 3 learning to swim was important for all kids at PBS. So Room 9 want to share their message that swimming at school really is, cool!


  1. I love your movie because it is fun. I like swimming because I love to dive in the water!

  2. Hi Room 9

  9. Hi Room 9,

    I enjoyed your movie and how you changed the original song to reflect your key message around water safety. Writing a song and keeping in time with the rhythm and beat require skill and patience. Keep up the great learning.

  18. Wow room 6 that was a nice film and i enjoyed it.

  19. Hi Room 9,
    I am impressed at how you were able to use the music from a popular song and use your own words in it, and words that are important for all to hear - listen to your teacher. Swimming IS cool, but you need to be safe, so do listen to your teacher at school, and your family elsewhere.
    Well done on a great movie!

    You're guys movie was awesome. I think it was really inspiring to those who don't take care of themselves in the water. I almost drowned once, when I was a young girl.
