Peter Stapleton AM


Peter Stapleton AM started Surf Life Saving at the Bondi Surf Bathers Life Saving Club in 1960 where he competed in Surf Boat crews for some 12 years. He has held various positions within the Bondi SLSC as Treasurer, Secretary and President and was honoured to be elected to Life Membership in 1976.

In 1969 he was elected to the position as Treasurer of Surf Life Saving Australia for some 10 years and elected to Life Membership of the SLSA National Council in 1981. In 1999 he was appointed as a Member of the Order of Australia (AM).

Currently he is a joint Patron of the Mollymook SLSC and a long service member of North Cronulla SLSC.

I am so deeply honoured to be an Ambassador for LSCA in the wonderful role it plays in the Surf Life Saving Community and indeed more recently in International Life Saving. The enormous growth since formation of the Chaplaincy is strong proof of the great need for pastoral support to our Lifesavers.
