Inspiring Marine Science Experts – Stewards of Swan Bay, is a marine science/environmental education program used throughout the school that also develops community-based science, civics, health and technology curriculum, transferable across other schools.
The project is supported by academic partners, Faculty of Marine Science and Deakin University, and community partners, the Marine and Freshwater Discovery Centre and Fisheries, Queenscliff. It teaches the young students to care for the shores of Port Phillip and Swan Bay and, through them, inspires their families, friends and the wider community.
