Without the help of parents, nipper days and carnivals would not be able to be held.
Accordingly, we request that at least one adult per family registered to be part of our parent helpers group. There are a variety of roles you can help with below, and some will even lead you to become a qualified lifesaver yourself!
Note all helpers need to have a valid Working With Children Check – see below for details. This is to comply with life-saving standards.
|Age Level Manager||Accredited Age Manager||3 hours (approx)|
|Age Level Manager's Assistant||Accredited Age Manager||3 hours (approx)|
|Water Safety||Bronze Medallion or Surf Rescue Certificate||38 hours (approx)|
