LJBC shows off its skills

21 March 2018

The students of Lake Joondalup Baptist College showcased their fantastic lifesaving skills at their recent swimming and lifesaving carnival.

Under the expert guidance of Royal Life Saving WA, the school replaced two of their usual novelty events with a rescue-tube relay and rope-throw relay, which the kids – aged between years 7 to 12 – excelled at.

The lifesaving events were impressively demonstrated at the carnival by WA lifesaving champions Jake and Callan Smith – who were a huge hit with the LJBC students.

As LJBC is located close to the beach and many of the students are involved in swimming and lifesaving, events such as these are important to teach them skills that are vital to assist them in responding to anyone who gets in trouble in the water.

We hope that more schools will follow LJBC’s lead and incorporate lifesaving events into their carnivals.
