Basil Van Reit from Huonville Primary School visited the Shed recently and expressed enthusiasm for a dose of ‘On the Water’ for his current batch of 5th Grade students.  This is a rowing program that the LBT has run for many years now to introduce children to boating.  The combination of our Grebes and the river make the LBT the perfect place for this sort of activity, and the growth in confidence and skill achieved by the kids is astonishing to see. Many of us who have been involved in the past would say that this is the most worthwhile thing we do. 

And it is fun! 

We would love to give a positive response to Basil (and invite other schools along), but before we can do that we need to be sure that we have sufficient LBT members willing to be help out for the 6 weeks of the program, starting late October.  Primary roles are safety boat and skippering.  If you would like to be involved please enter your name on the form below (https://tinyurl.com/y965xdgz).
