Beach Safe Presentation
The Queensland Health Beach Safe Presentation is delivered all year round to schools, universities, corporate and senior groups all over the state by volunteer lifesavers.
The program aims to change behaviours and save lives through education and increased understanding of vital beach safety messages in a fun and interactive environment. Students and adults that take part in the program will develop skills, attitudes and awareness that will keep them safe around water now and into the future.
Each year the program educates more than 50,000 people on how to stay safe on Queensland beaches.
Surf Life Saving Queensland has a COVID-19 Safe Industry Plan in place for all our programs.
The program is delivered free of charge thanks to Queensland Health funding.
All students will receive a free Queensland Health Beach Safe Activity booklet.
Presentation can be presented with AV. If school cannot provide space with AV it can be presented without.

“The Beach Safety Presentation was really good. It was very informative and lots of questions/comments from the students which you could see that time was allotted for this. Awesome. The presenter was so patient with the students, especially to those who needed time to speak (getting their words together in a sentence). The students LOVE reading and doing the activities in the booklet they all received too. Great job! – Shardai
“Amazing discussion when we got back to our room – showing how much the children took in and had an impact”
