Students from Suneden Special School hit the water with the help from Seacliff Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) during the months of March and April 2018. Some of the students had never been to the beach before or experienced swimming in the sea. Volunteers from Seacliff SLSC gave up their time on Tuesday mornings to enable the sessions to take place. The 8-week program allowed the students to enjoy the beach and learn new water safety skills.
Eight students attended the program, kitted out with life jackets, they all entered the water. One of the students, Zoe (pictured), was helped to the waters edge by the Club's new 4wd Commando. She was then placed in the water wheel chair with a smile from ear to ear. Zoe and her friends tried out rescue boards for the first time in the warm calm waters, either assisted or unaided and also played some fun surf games.
