June 2012 Recipients
Hibiscus Coast Schools Waterwise Society has received $798 from the Mazda Foundation to purchase a new beach trolley for their patrol boat.
The society educates local school children on the basics of water safety in a supervised environment. The beach trolley will allow the patrol boat to be easily manoeuvred at the start and end of each session.
“The new beach trolley will enable Waterwise instructors and parent helpers to quickly prepare the patrol boat, making the lessons more efficient,” says, Susan Lott, Hibiscus Coast Schools Waterwise Society committee member.
“We are aiming to introduce the trailer before the spring term begins as this is when the Waterwise programme will start to get busy.”
The beach trolley will help to transport the waterwise patrol boat which the Mazda Foundation funded in 2009.
