Surf’s up for Gillwinga students

LAST week students from years 4/5/6 at Gillwinga Public were given the opportunity to participate in a learn to surf program thanks to the funding provided as part of a Sporting Schools grant.

The students enjoyed a great day out at Woolgoolga main beach under the watchful eyes of the surf coaches from Solitary Islands Surf School.

 

The program not only aimed to teach students the fundamental skills of surfing but also provided an opportunity for students learn about the importance of surf safety and how to identify areas that are safe to swim in and areas that they should avoid.

Our students are looking forward to continuing to improve the surfing skills and overall surf awareness as part of the next session which will be happening in two weeks time.
