Royal Life Saving WA provides lifeguard support to recent regatta series

17 March 2022

Royal Life Saving WA’s Workforce Solutions team have been actively getting involved in the community, providing professional lifeguarding services at the most recent PSA Rowing Regatta series. 

Founded in 1905, the Public Schools Association (PSA) has grown to include a total of seven schools including Aquinas College, Guildford Grammar School, Hale School, Scotch College, Wesley College, Christ Church Grammar School and Trinity College. 

With six regatta events held every year during February and March as part of PSA’s longstanding rowing tradition, the main event, Head of the River was held on the 26th of February this year. The regatta series takes place at Champion Lakes Regatta Centre, a purpose-built facility for a range of sporting competitions, and the rowing events are action-packed days for boys from member schools to participate in. 

Royal Life Saving WA’s Workforce Solutions team provided a professional lifeguarding service for the regatta series. Shift Officer Cheyne Landy and Lifeguard Daniel Scott were onsite to provide lifeguarding assistance and water safety services as part of their work as professional lifeguards for public and private aquatic events. 

Usually, Head of the River takes place as the final event of the series. However, with the projected impact of COVID on school communities in the coming weeks, the decision was made to bring the event forward. Attendance at the event was limited to participants, staff, officials and immediate family, with anyone interested in watching the event able to view it from the provided live stream to ensure safety of the students. 

With one remaining regatta set to take place on Saturday 19th March, we wish all the best of luck to those participating.
