Summer Splash at Sorrento

78 Monash students ready to learn about water safety
A combination of Water Wise Learn to Swim participants and new Monash students took a bus down to Sorrento for a day to learn about water safety at the beach.

On arrival at Sorrento Surf Lifesaving Club, the Lifesaving Victoria Multicultural project team gave a fascinating information session about beach safety, giving the group some important advice on what they can do to be safer in the water.

Following the lesson at the Surf Lifesaving Club, the group was taken on a walk along the ocean front before jumping into some beach activities at the Sorrento bay beach. There were fun games on the sand such as beach soccer, while other games involving rescue tubes and boogey boards were intended to simulate ocean rescues.

The day was organised by the International Student Engagement Division and is supported by the Rootvij Kadakia Foundation, all the students had a great time, and Monash Sport look forward to a continued involvement in the future!

Any Monash students that would like to seek further aquatic education are encouraged to enrol in the fully funded Water Wise program. Thanks to SSAF funding, the program is totally free to Monash students.
