Water Safe School

Water Safe School is a Surf Life Saving Queensland initiative to help primary school-aged children stay safe in, on and around all types of waterways by learning vital water safety skills that they will keep with them for life.

The program is water-based and designed to be fun, engaging and a great way to educate students on the important aspects of water safety, whilst also increasing their skills and confidence in the water with a variety of water safety and lifesaving techniques.
