CHILDREN can learn vital lifesaving skills at Raby Bay through Surf Life Saving Queensland’s Little Lifesavers program.
The program for children aged five to 11 will be held at Foreshore Park from Monday.
SLSQ lifeguard supervisor for south-east Queensland Tim Wilson said the program provided a great introduction to surf lifesaving, without families having to travel to a surf beach or join a surf lifesaving club.
“Our highly skilled surf lifesavers guide children through a structured program that includes a wide range of games and educational activities which are designed to slowly build their confidence in the water,” Mr Wilson said.
“Participants will be introduced to board paddling, wading, dolphin diving, beach sprints and flags, as well as rescue techniques, patient care and CPR – all vital skills they will carry with them for life.”
All participants receive a Little Lifesavers pack which includes a long-sleeved rash shirt, bag, water bottle, activity booklet and completion certificate.
The Little Lifesavers program will be held from Monday, January 14 to 18 at Foreshore Park, running from 8am to 10am.
