FUTURE lifesavers and lifeguards tested their skills on Saturday 12th February at the Arena Joondalup Junior Lifeguard Club Development Session.

More than 30 children took part in the annual event, which tested their current skills, and introduced new lifesaving techniques and activities.

Royal Life Saving Society community education manager Trent Hotchkin said that the recent event had been successful and children had learned life-saving skills during their swimming lessons with the club.

“Whilst we ensure the activities are great fun and offer new experiences for the children, they also have a serious outcome of educating the children in essential lifesaving skills that may one day save a life,” Mr Hotchkin said.
