Event description

As things are quieting down at the homework club, we invited representatives of Surf Life Saving Victoria to speak to our primary students about how to be safe around water and when swimming at the beach. The session was dubbed 'Meet a Lifeguard' and some the topics it covered included how to identify a rip, what to do if you're caught in one, and how to identify the various flags and signals used by life savers in action.

The students enjoyed the session, particularly the ongoing opportunities for Q and A with the presenter, Olivia. She was able to field all of their questions well, even this one…”Miss, what do you do if you’re drowning and when the life guard comes to save you they get eaten by a shark?” Bless their wild imaginations.
