At OSLSC we encourage and appreciate family involvement and help. Please be prepared to chip in when asked. This may require going in the water to mark a safety zone, if you are comfortable doing so, or assisting with beach activities, helping a child to the First Aid Room, etc. Many hands make light work, and the kids love having their family members being part of the activities. Please bring your togs/wetsuit if you are prepared to go in the water to help. Don’t worry, we won’t ask you to swim to Kapiti Island :) Join in the fun, and you might even get the bug and want to qualify as a Junior Surf coach or Surf Lifeguard! Please encourage you child/children to follow the rules designed to keep them safe and learn new skills. This also goes for gear use. Some of the equipment is very expensive and all gear must be used with care.
