Ludita McLean and Sallie Watson working with a group of trainees in the pool at BunburyEach year Royal Life Saving WA has the privilege of acknowledging the incredible efforts of our team of community trainers who ensure people right across our state have access to learn vital first aid, swimming and lifesaving skills. We have a group of more than 400 dedicated individuals who undertake this important work, and act as ambassadors for Royal Life Saving in their communities.

Through our honours and awards system we ensure these efforts don’t go unnoticed, and one trainer who recently received an award is Ludita McLean. Ludita lives in Bunbury and has been a vital member of our team for almost two decades!

Ludita became a Bronze Examiner in 2002 before becoming a first aid trainer six years later. She has since been delivering Bronze Medallion, CPR and First Aid courses for students at Bunbury Catholic College and other community members, sport clubs and schools in the Bunbury area. She also delivers the First Aid in an Education and Care Setting to those working in child care across her region, while also assisting our assessor with the delivery of the START (School Teacher Aquatic Rescue) course in Bunbury every year.

Ludita was recently presented with a Meritorious Service Order by fellow Community Trainer Sallie Watson, while she was visiting the region to deliver the annual START course there. We thank her for being such a great ambassador of the Royal Life Saving message in the South West.
