Aussie Beach Session (run by UON Global)
February 23 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
This event is run by UON Global, and not to be confused with NUPSA’s own beach safety trip and BBQ on February 22. Still – why not sign up for both?
Do you want to make the most of Newcastle’s beautiful beaches during your time here but don’t have much experience swimming in the ocean?
Bring your towel and cossie (bathing suit) and join our Aussie Beach Session to learn about important surf survival skills and beach safety tips from the experts – The Hunter Surf Life Saving Crew. Discover how to negotiate surf conditions and what to do if you get into difficulty, stay sun smart, body surf and practice surf board paddling technique. There will also be time for some fun beach volleyball! Following the beach activities, a tasty lunch pack and refreshments will be provided for a picnic by the beach.
This Aussie beach experience includes all equipment, professional surf instruction, a catered lunch pack and coach transfers from Callaghan Campus or Newspace City Campus and is proudly sponsored by Allianz Global Assistance OSHC.
Tickets are limited to 40 students, so get in quick to secure your ticket!
Please note: This session is designed for swimmers of all abilities. The event contains a combination of both water-based activities and beach-based activities and is supervised by trained Surf Life Savers.
