Lily Hersey was also selected to participate in the 2019 Breaka Beach Program from the 25th – 31st August apart of the Yeppoon Surf Lifesaving Queensland.
The Breaka Beach to Bush Program offers students in regional areas an introduction to surf lifesaving and the vital surf safety skills required to stay safe in an aquatic environment. Qualified surf lifesavers visit classrooms across the country to deliver surf safety lessons using lifesaving equipment.
The program is designed to increase awareness of the risks associated with the surf and to show children how to minimise these risks. Children from regional communities are often less familiar with the potential dangers of the surf therefore, the program aims to reach those children before they reach the beach.
The program began in Queensland in 1998 and since 2003 other states have adopted the program making it a national initiative. Today it is the largest and most innovative surf education program in Australia reaching more than 60 schools and 10,000 students each year. Congrats Lily, we know you’ll do great!
