School Beach Program
For the past 14 years the club has run a school’s program for Wembley Primary School. We also run ‘Meet a Lifesaver’ session for 125 Williamstown North Primary School Foundation students.
This season we had a total of 435 Primary and Secondary School students learn all about Lifesaving and the skills required to be involved in Lifesaving.
I would like to thank the students and teachers from Wembley Primary School have requested to do the program again next year, I also need to thank all of the lifesavers who gave up their time to come down to the beach and help out with the program.
We continued our 10-week Lifesaving Program with Albert Park College. In conjunction with Life Saving Victoria 189 Year 7 students completed a lifesaving program that formed part of the school’s curriculum that we will offer for each starting year of the college. This program provides an introduction to lifesaving and club activities which we hope will encourage the students to become patrolling members of Port Melbourne.
The one thing you can guarantee in Melbourne in Summer is cold weather, some of our senior lifesavers demonstrating a full CPR scenario.
