Fremantle College recently hosted over 80 Year 5 students from local primary schools who were given a ‘taste’ of the Specialist Marine Studies Program on offer to students of the new college in 2018.
Students were able to try their hand at many of the activities and skills that make up the Marine program, including snorkelling, using BRUV (Baited Remote Underwater Video) technology and dissecting fish. Feedback collected on the day has been overwhelmingly positive with many students very keen to apply for the Marine program in the future.
Fremantle College Associate Principal, Emma Walker, said, “It has been fantastic to see how passionate these students are in learning about and conserving the marine environment. Fremantle College is ideally placed to harness this passion by providing students with access to the Specialist Marine Studies Program which can lead to a variety of roles across maritime industries including marine environmental management, fisheries, tourism, boating and marine operations, biodiversity conservation and marine ecology.”
Fremantle College would like to acknowledge the support shown by the principals and staff from the participating primary schools in allowing their students the opportunity to join in the day.
