On Wednesday, the Pacific Pulse Surf Contest was held at Currimundi Beach. The Contest, which has been an annual event since 2008, involves almost 50 students from schools across the coast. The Contest caters for all ability levels and is well supported by local businesses who provide sponsorship. Students have the opportunity to surf in a safe environment amongst friendly competition. Beach activities and games are also set up to occupy students who are in-between heats.

Organising the event and recruiting sponsors takes a great deal of time and effort. A special thank you to Mr Darren Hooper and Mr Damian Davis for their leadership and organisation of this impressive community event. As an example of their dedication, both were at the beach at 5.00am to set up for the day. In todays connected world, through the work of Mrs Natalie Campbell and Mrs Steph Scarlett, our Community Liaison and Communications Coordinator, heat results were live streamed and a contest video has been shared on our Facebook page (with thanks to Sunshine Coast Videography). Thank you also to USC student teachers, Miss Goddard and Miss Penhaligon, for helping run the beach activities and all the parents and family members who attended the event. It was a great community effort.

Mr David Druery, Head of Staff and Students P-5
