WONTHAGGI North Primary School held
their end of year fun day for grade 5/6 stu-
dents at the bay beach in Cape Paterson on
Tuesday before Christmas, with students
learning the basics of beach safety from mem-
bers of the Wonthaggi Life Saving Club.
Students got to go out in the IRB and use
rescue boards to practice basic life-saving
skills whilst also getting an understanding of
how to be safe when at the beach.
Wonthaggi Life Saving Club president Mark
Scott said the club has been kept busy in the
lead up to the busy holiday period.
“We’ve had the LSV Open Water Experience
visit again, teaching kids about water safety as
well as school trips and other bits and pieces.”
“We’re looking forward to another big sea-
son for the club with nippers starting up
again soon and the 80th year celebrations at
the start of next year, there’s plenty going on.”
Nippers at the Wonthaggi Life Saving Club
kicked off on Wednesday, December 27 with
a registration day.
The club is encouraging all kids to come and
get involved and learn the basics of beach safe-
ty and competing in all the nippers’ activities.
LIFE Saving Victoria and Bass Coast Shire
Council are urging beach-goers to swim be-
tween the red and yellow flags this summer.
Following last years ‘Don’t risk the rip’ cam-
paign, Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield,
said we all need to be diligent regardless of
whether we are locals or visitors, strong swim-
mers or weak swimmers.
“Anyone can get caught in a rip and get into danger.
“We’ve had many tragedies on beaches in
Bass Coast in past years, and we don’t want to
see any more lives lost,” Cr Rothfield said.
“I can’t emphasise strongly enough how im-
portant it is to never swim in dangerous con-
ditions, no matter how strong a swimmer you
may be, and to always have someone looking
out for you – never swim in the ocean alone.
“If in doubt, ask a surf lifesaver about an al-
ternative place to swim and, where possible,
swim at a patrolled beach between the red and
Lifeguards will be on duty every day from
10am to 6pm at Inverloch, Smiths Beach,

erate each weekend and public holiday from De-
cember 2017 to April 15, 2018 at these beaches
as well as Cape Paterson Bay Beach and First Surf.
