Young adults swimming at the beach

22 February 2022

Make summer endless with our free water safety classes – you could also win surfing lessons!

With Trimester 1 just around the corner, the holidays are coming to an end. But if you’re not quite ready to let go of those summer vibes, then we have the activity for you!

Take advantage of the beautiful March weather by signing up for our free water safety program. Learning some basic water safety skills will give you the confidence to enjoy spending time at the beach, pool, river, lake or another kind of waterhole without becoming a drowning statistic.

It’s also a great way to meet other students, spend some time in the beautiful outdoors and have heaps of fun!

Choose from two locations

Open to all students, you’ll find this program particularly helpful if you don’t have a lot of swimming experience.

These aren’t formal learn-to-swim classes – rather, qualified instructors will explain water safety theory and demonstrate some practical skills like body boarding and rescue strategies. You’ll then be able to take a dip and put your newfound expertise into action in a supervised environment.

Places are limited, so book now. You must be fully vaccinated to take part in this program.
