    At the Branch Awards of Excellence held Saturday 25 May 2024, Thomas Hough  was  awarded Surf Lifesaver of the Year

    Tom has had an outstanding season as a surf lifesaver on the beach and in addition his deep commitment to education training and assessing. His selflessness, patience, dedication and unwavering support reflect his commitment to the surf lifesaving mission of achieving zero preventable drownings. His commitment to excellence was demonstrated through 135 hours of patrol on the beach, personal oversight of over 10 bronze medallion assessments and mock-assessments ensuring a high standard of competency among newly certified lifesavers. Tom’s leadership and dedication has significantly impacted the lifesaving community by fostering a culture of excellence and safety, enhancing operational effectiveness and inspiring both current and future generations of lifesavers to continue pushing for higher standards and greater community engagement.  Tom’s encouragement has also led to an increase in the number of young lifesavers aspiring to be future leaders of Bondi SBLSC.  Congratulations Thomas on your contribution to lifesaving.
