The beach has a place in everyone's story
Surf Life Saving is much more than just saving lives on the beach
A key priority for us is reaching out to all Australians through our substantial community education programs. We aim to teach all Australians how to keep themselves and their families safe at the beach.
The beach is a place for everyone
This unit and associated resources focus on delivering the key water safety message that the beach is a place for everyone to safely experience the beach, coastline and inland waterways. It also gives students an opportunity to further develop their literacy skills, address the Cross-Curriculum Priorities of the NSW Curriculum and give students to experience authentic learning by creating meaningful projects through inquiry-based tasks.
