Surf Life Saving in the Northern Region provides a unique practical and theoretical programme at the beach!
Surf Lifeguard Instructors bring the Surf to School trailer into the school grounds and they deliver fun filled sessions for up to 90 minutes.
"On behalf of Glendene School, a BIG THANKYOU to Surf Life Saving Northern Region and Sport Waitakere for sponsoring our senior school to attend a day at Piha learning surf and beach safety! What a fantastic day we had. At least 25 adults came with our 60 senior students and we all learnt so much about aspects of sea safety. It was so worthwhile because our students had the theory bit first, clearly presented by the lifeguards and then could put into practice some of the skills in the water. The reality of the drowning statistics amongst our population makes it such an important experience for our children to have."
"We had an awesome time at the Beach Ed and the kids really
enjoyed the day. Your girls were great and did really well.
My step daughter is a surf life-saver at North Piha, so it was
great to have locals take the day. I really enjoyed
the day with the parents and kids too!" Thanks
