Beach's FY18 sponsorships

(not all sponsorships featured)

Royal Flying Doctor Service

Every day the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) takes the finest care to the furthest corners of Australia so that anyone who lives, works or travels in remote and rural Australia can enjoy quality healthcare. Delivered by a dedicated team of professionals, the RFDS uses the latest in aviation, medical and communications technology, to deliver both 24-hour emergency services and everyday essential health care throughout Australia.

The RFDS‘ Central Operations assists nearly 50,000 patients in South Australia and the Northern Territory every year and Beach is proud to be a corporate partner. Our financial support benefits the RFDS capital-raising program for the replacement of medical equipment in its flying intensive care units that cost $7 million each.

SA Museum

The Beach Energy’s long standing partnership with the South Australian Museum reflects a common interest to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).  Beach sponsors the Museum’s Out of the Glass Case program and the Boutique Exhibition Series.

Out of the Glass Case represents an unparalleled outreach program among Australian museums. Museum staff travel across the state, providing STEM-based educational opportunities to those who might not otherwise have readily available access to the Museum.  Out of the Glass Case brings the Museum and its learning to rural and remote communities, as well as to vibrant key State events including WOMADelaide and Science Week.  Since 2010, the Museum has taken key artefacts and items to members of communities located in the APY lands and other parts of South Australia to share knowledge and to create meaningful opportunities for young people across our community.

The SA Museum holds the most significant collection of Australian Aboriginal material in the world and the Boutique Exhibition Series will showcase some of these artefacts. Three exhibitions named: Shared Sky, Jacob Stengle and Evolution: Torres Strait Masks will be exhibited throughout the year and be free to all visitors.

Zoos SA Beach Energy is proud to sponsor Zoos SA and its latest educational initiative - The Adelaide Zoo Application. This application creates a virtual keeper tour by using Bluetooth beacons across the Zoo. This app provides location-based information that it delivers to visitors as they move around the site. This enables users to receive information that is relevant to them and the location in which the beacon is placed. Beacon technology can generate an enhanced visitor experience which will help Zoos SA to achieve their mission to save species from extinction and connect people with nature. Beach is proud to once again support this program and its latest expansion into Monarto Zoo.

Geofutures

Beach Energy, along with Thebarton Senior College and the South Australian Government, have partnered to fund a program to provide more South Australian students with the option of studying geology at senior school level. This partnership has seen the establishment of the GeoFutures Education Program at Thebarton Senior College for Year 11 and 12 students. The program is open to students from all South Australian schools who are interested in completing Stage 2 Geology as part of their South Australian Certificate of Education.
