Surfing Excellence


​Excellence Program

This program is an initiative of the school and wider community. Predominantly aimed at year 4-6 students, students selected for this program participate in training and further their skills through competitions. These students have demonstrated a readiness to be part of this program through hard work and skill development.

Most students start in the development program and progress to the excellence program. Lessons run weekly however with surf conditions and some school events, this may vary.

The program hosts the Curra Grom Fest, supports the Parko Grom Stomp, and has students enter a number of Coastal District Surfing Series events. Former student and 2012 World Surfing Champion, Joel Parkinson, is the patron of our Surfing Excellence Program and regularly updates his contribution to the overall running of the program.

Development Program

This program is for students who have demonstrated surfing readiness.

These students can be any age providing they are swim safe and can paddle independently. This group will at times be heavily supervised and may benefit from some push on assistance. This is not a Learn to Surf group (North Caloundra Surf School, and other surf schools, provide Surf Groms sessions to learn to surf as an avenue to move into the Development Group).
