A DIFFERENT TYPE OF CLASSROOM
School programs, water safety, surfing, first aid and resuscitation are all just a part of the programs and services offered to schools, students and teachers throughout South Australia.
Surf Life Saving is the leading open water safety organisation with rescue, education and prevention being the three core principles that programs and services are based upon. Programs can be tailored to meet a school's needs. This can include Lifeguard Services, Pathway to Pool Lifeguard course, VET courses and SACE accreditation points.
Surf Education is a comprehensive curriculum designed by Surf Life Saving Australia and mapped into the Health and Physical Education Learning Area to develop student understanding, skills and values relative to aquatic safety and management. Sessions are conducted at the beach or other aquatic venues and may include a classroom lesson.
Government schools can access the program through the Sport, Swimming and Aquatics Unit on 8226 1302.
Non-government schools can contact the Surf Education Coordinator directly on 8354 6900 or by email.
We can provide lifeguard patrols for all aquatic activities, such as school excursions and sporting events.
