Maxi the Lifeguard, also known as Trent Maxwell from hit programme Bondi Beach, visited our Key Stage 2 children this morning to talk about water and fire safety.

In 2018 Maxi founded a Social Enterprise ‘Live Learn Survive’ which is a series of interactive Fire & Water Safety workshops. These workshops educate children and young adults to teach them skills that save lives. The ‘Maxi the Lifeguard’ books purchased through Maxi’s website support and enable Live Learn Survive workshops to be carried out in disadvantaged areas.

Children can attend workshops on water safety at South Shields Beach tomorrow from 12:15 (registration) and there are additional fire rescue workshops on Newcastle Quayside from 11:00 Sunday.
