Surf’s up!

January 19, 2013

With our extremely exciting term 1 program due to come out next week, I just wanted to give you a heads up about one of our first events for the year… At our children’s request we have organised a class at the Cronulla Surf School.  The class will run from 10:30-12:30 on Tuesday the 29th of January, children need to be able to swim 100m to participate (this can involve changing strokes, the staff will take the kids for a swim in the rock pool first, and adapt their lesson to the children’s swimming ability).  The following is an excerpt from the website: http://www.cronullasurf.com.au/kids01.php

“These sessions are for all levels of ability. Whether you’re keen to get started, or wanting to learn some new impressive manoeuvres, our lessons are the way to go. You’ll be with a group of kids around your level, learn some great stuff and have a good time!
If the parents need some encouragement… at Surfing Cronulla Surfschool all our coaches are Level 1 accredited with Surfing Australia and hold senior first aid, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and bronze medallion certification. They are also registered with the Department of Sport and Recreation to “work with children”.

We operate under strict quality guidelines, ensuring a professional, fun and rewarding experience. We are forever mindful of ensuring everyone is taught in safe conditions. If conditions are considered unsafe or dangerous the course location may change. We also use softboards, which are easy to learn on and safe. Wetsuits, rashies and 30+sun cream are provided.”

The 2hr lesson will cost approximately $45 per child, with a $3 per child donation, for Non-HEA members.  This is a Home Education Association Inc. (HEA) event

Please let me know ASAP if you are interested in attending by emailing sparksandflames@soundview.com.au (please don’t hit reply to this if you receive it as an email, it comes from a send only address).  Bookings are essential, and must be made by Friday 25th January.

This event will be on the program that comes out next week, but I thought, as its fast approaching, I should let you know right away! I will need to know definite numbers for the surfing class by Friday 25th January.  There will also be something organised for those staying in the mountains on the 29th, details in the term 1 program, out next week!

Best summer wishes, and excited dances about the year ahead!
