Student Programs - Surf Life Saving Program


Upwey High School has had a long term partnership with the Woolamai Surf Life Saving Club at Phillip Island.

Over sixty Years 10-12 students are involved in the program, and many ex-students continue their association with the club.


The Year 10 Commitment to the Program:

 Students will be introduced to Surfing and Surf Life Saving rescue and resuscitation procedures.

Once students have obtained their Surf Bronze they will become members of the Woolamai Beach Surf Life Saving Club and be expected to undertake patrol duties over summer.

Students also complete:

  • a first aid certificate
  • an advanced resuscitation certificate
  • a 5 day camp at Woolamai Beach.
