LSV’s Open Water Learning Experience (OWLE) program creates ‘Everyday Lifesavers’ out of Victorian students, by teaching them practical and engaging water safety, lifesaving and emergency response skills. The OWLE program is designed to empower students to make safe aquatic related decisions while enjoying their local waterway. The OWLE program is ideal to enhance your school’s swimming and water safety or camp programs.
The program aligns to the Victorian Curriculum and is supported by free online resources and cross-curriculum lesson plans for Foundation (Prep) to Year 10. These documents can be found HERE on the website.
LSV is proud to be in partnership with the Victorian YMCA to deliver the OWLE program in Victorian YMCA Camps. For more information, CLICK HERE.
Testimonial: Yesterday our Grade 3/4s participated in the OWLE program at Sandridge Beach. Not only did the kids have a fabulous time but they learnt a lot of valuable information, particularly coming into Summer. The professionalism of the life guards was much appreciated and on behalf of the 3/4 Learning Team at Riddells Creek Primary School, we can not thank you enough. It was a very well worth it program!
