The beach and surfing program is offered by our School is unique.
We are the only Education Queensland Special School with a structured program of community access for our students to swim in the surf and access our local beaches.
The teachers running the program are qualified and current Surf Life Savers who are required to pass annual Proficiency and Fitness Examinations.
This program provides for all abilities: a beach and surf access wheelchair provides the opportunity for students with restricted mobility to enjoy the water alongside their peers.
The movement of the surf develops students’ physical fitness, co-ordination and water safety.
Students engage with surf volunteers who provide skill development and broader community integration.
This program provides opportunities for students to access a recreational pursuit which is freely available and highly relevant to our coastal living.
