Surf Lifesaving Program Recruitment – Register Now

Surf Life Saving

We are currently recruiting students to participate in the College’s Surf Lifesaving Program. This is a standalone Summer co-curricular option available to students turning 15 by the end of the year and older. The program will begin in Term 4 and will continue in Term 1, 2023.

Students will complete their Bronze Medallion in Term 4, before being assigned patrols for Term 1, 2023. While the normal cost of a Bronze Medallion course at Bondi is $500 per club member, this program will be charged at approximately $300 given the use of school facilities and teacher support.

Please note that all students must be able to swim 400m in nine minutes or less, as part of their successful completion of the Bronze Medallion course.

We are fortunate to have access to Sydney’s iconic Bondi Beach, and all SLSC students will become members of the Bondi Surf Bathers’ Lifesaving Club, one of Australia’s oldest surf clubs. If students are currently members of another surf club, they are able to retain that existing membership in addition to joining Bondi.
