Zara Hall of Moruya SLSC and Archie Weir of Kiama Downs SLSC have been named NSW Junior Lifesavers of the Year after three days of team building and leadership development on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

Formally recognised during a presentation ceremony on Friday morning, 26 April, Zara and Archie were two in a group of 22 eager 14-year-olds who came from each of the 11 branches across NSW, having been acknowledged themselves as Junior Lifesavers of the Year for their region.

“I did not expect to win and I was so surprised when I got it,” Zara said.

“I went through all the emotions, I was nervous, I was excited, but it means so much to me to represent the Far South Coast and my club, Moruya here.”

“I’m ecstatic, it’s been a bit of a dream of mine for a while. I’ve been in lifesaving since I was a little Nipper and it means so much to come here to this camp and be with likeminded people, it’s really expanding my horizons,” Archie added.
