Learning to save lives at the beach with Lifesavers and CMY

January 11, 2017
January 11, 2017 at Altona Beach: Life Saving Victoria and Centre for Multicultural Youth teamed up to run a beach Safety Program at Altona Beach designed especially for multicultural youth. Young people from varied cultural backgrounds gathered at Broadmeadows Leisure Centre in the early afternoon to be ferried over to sunny Altona Beach for a day of learning and fun.
 
The instructors from Life Saving Victoria started out with an informative presentation indoors before warming up with a fantastic game of soccer. Once the heart rates were pumping, every one was ready for the water! The young men and women were then taught how to save lives using two different kinds of boards and an assortment of items you might find in a typical beach picnic bag. Much fun was had, many new things were learned and some even started to consider a career in life saving...
