Beach Safety Day


Our vision is to host a beach safety day for the year nines, teaching them about beach safety.


Our project idea came about when we were brainstorming things that were special about Altona and some things that could do with a bit of improvement. One of the special things about our town is the beach, and we have noticed that it is a very popular place to go but not everyone is always safe there or aware of the dangers present at the beach. We have also realized that there often is a lot of litter at the beach and the harm this can cause to local wildlife and the environment. The project will be able to benefit the whole community by creating a safer and cleaner environment at the beach for everyone and specifically the year 9s at Altona College as they will become more educated about the beach.

Our vision is for a community where we can create a safer environment at Altona beach for year 9 students by raising awareness of the risks that can occur and understanding how to keep safe at the beach. Also educating them on the importance and our responsibility of keeping our beach clean by hosting an educational and entertaining day at the beach.

Our project will entail an educational day out at the beach with the whole year 9 cohort. We will split the cohort in half, having half attend an approximately 2-hour safety lesson with Altona Surf Life Saving Club in the morning, to educate them on things such as rips, CPR and other vital information we can use to help us survive in case of any unfortunate situations. The other half will involve partaking in some community service, cleaning up along the shores of our beloved beach and the surrounding areas.

The CLP is the curriculum thread that runs in an adjoining and continuous manner through the program. It provides the purpose for attendance and the motivation for departure. Students are intrinsically connected to their projects, which aim to deliver an action outcome of their learning into their home communities.


Students present their Community Learning Project (CLP) during “CLP Day” during the final weeks of their SSL residential program.
