As a part of their surf awareness initiative Coogee Surf Club has conducted a number of beach safety information sessions for both international families and students, a demographic effected by ocean tragedy in the Sydney area.
We are filling the need for beach safety for overseas citizens who might not have the privilege of beaches where they are from. Sydney boasts a long coastline of picturesque beaches which we all enjoy, however the seas are very dangerous and if uneducated, can cause some serious injury. These simple programs ensure that more people are aware of the dangers and inform them on how to be safe during a day at the beach.
Funding would go towards facilitating additional workshops and purchasing hi visibility singlets to use for our beach safety program when the students go in the ocean with the lifesavers. This will increase safety and increase our branding within the wider community
