Beach safety competition

Unfortunately, our coastline can be a dangerous playground, so learning to educate children early on how to stay safe while enjoying our beautiful beaches is vital.

In conjunction with Surf Life Saving Australia, Boyd Conrick has just published a second beach safety book for children aged 3-7 years.

Following on from the first book, At the Beach with Lizzie and Luke, Shark Sighting focuses on young surf lifesavers Lizzie and Luke as they embark on another adventure.

The new book also reinforces values that are important for child development such as working as a team, communicating efficiently, contributing positively to the community and promoting the benefits of a safe but active lifestyle.

General beach safety information can also be found at the back of each book.

The books are available for purchase from the website – all proceeds go towards helping a young surf lifesaver who suffered an horrific spinal injury in 2018.
