As part of our Health and Physical Education curriculum, all of our students will be taking part in a specialised Beach and Surf Education programme during week 8 this term.
NZ Surf Academy is providing our students with a full day of surf safety and surf lessons. beach games and activities. These programmes enable students to develop more confidence and knowledge in the surf and provide important skills to stay safe in New Zealand’s waters. Surfing will be done in waist-high water, and students will be in a wetsuit that acts as a buoyancy aid and have a surfboard strapped to their ankle. The aim is to build the students’ confidence within a safe environment.

The day includes:

  • A group surfing lesson with qualified & enthusiastic surf instructors
  • Beach safety & surf lifesaving talk
  • Board handling, paddling & stance demonstration Beach games and other activities
