Get your school involved
Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries Inc. (EMS) is a marine education program supported by Department for Environment and Water. EMS is inviting five schools (years 9 &10) to (years 9, 10 and 11) to register for the EMS School Education Program.
EMS is looking for schools that can be involved between Oct – May . All in water activities will be completed while water warm and before the end of April.
The EMS Education Program empowers schools and communities by providing hands-on ‘in-water’ experiences in the ocean. The full EMS program involves investigating marine biodiversity within local unprotected marine environments before venturing to a fully protected marine sanctuary. After this experience (and/or classroom activities and research), students are able to compare unprotected and protected areas and are supported to put their knowledge into action within the community. EMS educators and snorkel leaders offer guidance, direction and coordination of classroom exercises and field trips to the ocean. We also provide snorkel equipment, instruction, resources with curriculum links and snorkel safety management.
