A send-off party for nine members of Bali's Bandung Regency Life Saving Squad was recently organized by the Australian Consulate in Bali prior to the group's departure on Tuesday, February 15, 2005.
The nine-man team will be working side-by-side with Western Australian life-savers at the Cottesloe Surf Life Saving Club, undergoing intensive training to sharpen their life-saving skills and help Bali prepare a team for the World Life Saving Championships set for Victoria, Australia in February 2006.
Reflecting the very cordial state of relations now blossoming between Indonesia and Australia, a Consulate official described the unique chance to work with Australian lifesavers as a cross-cultural exchange that both sharpens skills and builds lasting friendships between Australians and Balinese.
