BEACH TO BUSH PROGRAM 2012
The Telstra Beach to Bush Program offers students in regional areas an introduction to Surf Life Saving and the vital surf safety skills required to stay safe in an aquatic environment. Qualified Surf Lifesavers visit classrooms across the country to deliver interactive surf safety lessons using lifesaving equipment.
The program is designed to increase awareness of the risks associated with the surf and local waterways and show children how to minimise these risks. Children from regional communities are often less familiar with the potential dangers of the surf and the program aims to reach those children before they reach the beach.
The program, which is going into its eighth year in Queensland, is the largest and most innovative surf education program in Australia today, reaching more than 70 schools and 10,000 students each year.
