Surf Lifesaving Champions

Ben Walker, Zach Havard and Jeremy Heys win Gold at the NSW Open Surf Life Saving Titles

From Director of Co-curriculum, Patrick Brennan

Last week’s Surf Life Saving NSW State Titles saw a number of Waverley College students achieve success in both the Nippers and Open competitions.

Historically, a large number of our students are involved in Surf Life Saving because of our proximity to the coastline. Surf Clubs are a great part of the local community not only because they save lives, but because they encourage lifelong physical activity.

Surf Life Saving Australia patrols 12,000 beaches, 36,000 kilometres of coastline and over 100 million visitors to our beaches annually.

Waverley College supports Surf Life Saving by granting exemptions to boys who submit an application to the Head of College two weeks before the exemption date. All boys at the College are eligible to apply for two days of leave from their Co-curricular sport or activity each year.

Congratulations to all of our students (and some staff) who contribute to this iconic Australian community service.
