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.
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.
