Seahorse NippersIn 2014 a committee was formed at North Burleigh SLSC to commence & approve a program for Special Needs Children to participate in Surf Lifesaving; learn water safety; beach skills & activities & make every opportunity available, to participate.

Possibly the best gift for our amazing families is from them to see their child be able to participate fully ~ Learning, developing invaluable skills, enjoying beach & water activities, having buckets of laughs & fun, and making new friends.


Date: 23rd April

Time: 9am start

Participants please register :Debbie Hazlewood at

Volunteers please register  :

Many have already supported or participated in the program to date. If you wish to be a volunteer or assist in any way, please contact us. Be part of something truly special that makes a unique difference to a child (& their family).

Warning: You may be crawling through tunnels, getting covered in sand, getting wet & laugh until your Seahorse belly hurts. BIG hearts are welcome here!!
