After School Surfing
Victor Harbor R–7 offers a surfing program for Years 5, 6 and 7 in Terms 1 and 4.
Students learn to surf at Middleton with instructors from our onsite DECD Aquatics Centre using safe equipment.
Participants learn about local conditions, take part in friendly competitions with neighbouring schools as well as learning the spirit of surfing and how to care for the equipment, each other and their environment.
Some of our surfing students have progressed on to state level competition or weekend surfing. Some take on the role mentors in the program or become Aquatics instructors.
Other schools involved are Pt. Elliot, Goolwa and Kangarilla Primary Schools along with Victor Harbor High.
