If your child is passionate about the study of marine based science, loves the outdoors and adventure we encourage them to be part of our Specialist Marine Studies Program set in the pristine Cockburn Sound and Fremantle Coastal marine environment.
Your child will gain a greater understanding of the complex issues that impact on our oceans including global climate change, fisheries and food production and maritime pollution.
They will take steps to support the conservation and management of the marine environment and develop a greater understanding of biology, coastal physical sciences and coastal management through practical and experiential learning.
Your child will participate in snorkelling, SCUBA diving, camps, coastal excursions and boat handling with endorsed and externally recognised qualifications.
Our program has strong community links to Fremantle Ports, PADI, Curtin University, UWA, the Australasian Maritime Association and the CSIRO.
Your child will develop strong positive relationships and social, leadership and problem solving skills to give them the edge in their future careers.
